Based on 1,734 owner and expert reviews, Optoma has good ratings for its projectors. Optoma also has good ratings specifically within its 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors range compared to other brands.

Supports 3D

The Optoma X300 supports 3D. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the X300 also support 3D.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the Optoma X300 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Infocus IN112A[plb_2178166_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is the most commonly supported supported graphics resolutions on 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the X300 have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 3,000h and 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,900h. The Optoma X300 has one of the longer service life of lamp (economic mode)s (6,500 hours) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

At only 28 decibels, the Optoma X300 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The noise levels of 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 26dB to 40dB.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X300, the Optoma X300 does not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the PJD7820HD[pl_1536139_price], the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price], or the PJD8633[pl_1597774_price] all from Viewsonic is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma X300 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the X300 also do not support wi-Fi.

Other data projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11000[plb_2549617_price].

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Optoma X300 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,800 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the X300. The average projector brightness of 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X300 is 4,200 ANSI lumens.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Viewsonic PJD5232[plb_1530986_price] which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Infocus IN114A[plb_2100765_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
