6 Reasons For

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

Based on 1,734 owner and expert reviews, Optoma has good ratings for its data projectors. Optoma also has good ratings specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors compared to other brands.

Supports 3D

The Optoma ZH300UW supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the ZH300UW do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The ZH300UW has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other latest multimedia projectors also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The ZH300UW supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over two times the resolution of a 1024 x 768 (XGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that are a similar age to the ZH300UW. 1024 x 768 (XGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this Optoma projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 640 x 480 (VGA), 800 x 480 (WVGA), 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 720 (HD 720) and 1360 x 768 (WXGA). The worst resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the ZH300UW is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 32 decibels, the Optoma ZH300UW has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other recently released multimedia projectors. Across all the similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the ZH300UW the noise levels range from 28dB to 41dB.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the CP-WX8650[pl_3256010_price] (35dB), or the CP-WU8600[pl_3255968_price] (35dB) both from Hitachi.

Very Long Service Life of Lamp

Across all the multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months the service life of lamps range from 2,500h to 30,000h. When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the ZH300UW that we have checked, the Optoma ZH300UW's service life of lamp of 20,000 hours is one of the longest.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The ZH300UW does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other recently released data projectors also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The ZH300UW does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out in the last year also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Hitachi CP-WX5500[plb_3397843_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Optoma ZH300UW has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other latest multimedia projectors. The average projector brightness of recently released projectors is 5,200 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesss range from 450 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Hitachi CP-CW301WN[plb_3869672_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the Epson EB-580S[plb_3357331_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens).

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

At only 10 Watts, the ZH300UW has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the ZH300UW. Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the ZH300UW the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 14W.

Only One Audio (L,R) in

The ZH300UW is a one audio (L,R) in data projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

At 32 decibels, the ZH300UW has a quite loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the ZH300UW. Newly released 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors have noise level (economic mode)s of between 28dB and 39dB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The optical zooms of latest projectors range from 1x to 1.8x, and the average optical zoom is 1.6x. At only 1 times zoom factor, the Optoma ZH300UW has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other newly released 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.
