2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma X312

Average Projector Brightness

The Optoma X312 has a pretty average projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched more than a year ago.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD5255[plb_2831063_price] is also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the PJD6352[pl_2831189_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the PJD6552LW[pl_3220997_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens) both from Viewsonic.
