9 Reasons For

Optoma Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked 1,734 owner and expert reviews for Optoma projectors and found that on average Optoma has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Optoma has good reviews specifically for its data projectors.

Easy to Use

One Optoma W310 owner mentioned in their reviews that this projector was easy to setup. Mr. Malcolm Lucas wrote in his Optoma W310 review in October last year “Good bright picture and easy to set up”.

Good 3D Picture Quality

One Optoma W310 owner who bought the product considered that it had a good 3D picture quality. M J Hillerby rated it 5 stars and mentioned “I use it on HDMI and the 3D is great” in their review of this projector.

Acceptable Noise Level

One Optoma W310 owner who purchased it concluded that it was noisy. M J Hillerby mentioned “Although a little noisier this a a great machine” in their review of this projector.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the W310, the Optoma W310 has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Infocus IN114[plb_2875851_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Viewsonic PJD5255[plb_2831063_price].

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Acer P1385W[plb_3021262_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W310, the Optoma W310 supports 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D and we think a cheaper projector such as the Infocus IN114[plb_2875851_price] or you might consider a better rated projector such as the Viewsonic PJD5255[plb_2831063_price] are also worth considering.

Other projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to consider include the Acer P1385W[plb_3021262_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma W310 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W310. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the W310 the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

The Optoma W310 has a quite big matrix size (0.65 inches) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the W310. Across all the data projectors that came out around the same time as the W310 the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.74", and the average matrix size is 0.6".

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Data projectors that were launched more than a year ago have noise levels of between 22dB and 39dB, and the average noise level is 32dB. At only 29 decibels, the Optoma W310 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the W310.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Vivitek Qumi Q4[plb_2735307_price] (36dB).

5 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

One Optoma W310 owner who reviewed it considered that it was not heavy and bulky. M J Hillerby mentioned in their Optoma W310 review on Amazon last year “There were white dots everywhere, as the unit had not let me down in heavy use for 6 years I could not complain”.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma W310 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W310 also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Infocus SP1080[plb_3696418_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma W310 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Sony MP-CL1[plb_3151534_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Small Bulb Power

At only 195 Watts, the Optoma W310 has a fairly small bulb power compared to most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the W310. Data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the W310 have bulb powers of between 50W and 380W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

The average uniformity of projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the W310 is 86%. The Optoma W310 has a quite small uniformity (only 80 percent) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the W310.

Optoma released the W310 over two years ago.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found projector native resolution on comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

The Optoma W310 has a fairly standard projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been around for more than a year.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Viewsonic PJD5255[plb_2831063_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Infocus IN112[plb_2875850_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated); or the Infocus IN114[plb_2875851_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
