3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma X303

Released Over Three Years Ago

This 15000:1 contrast ratio data projector has been on the market for over three years.

Average Projector Brightness

The Optoma X303 has a fairly typical projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the PJD6245[pl_1530989_price], or the PJD5483S[pl_1610144_price] both from Viewsonic or the Optoma X302[plb_1725842_price] which has better reviews.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the X307[pl_1727619_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the W306[pl_1726310_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Optoma or the Infocus IN122A[plb_2194102_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
