16 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The DS330 is one of the most economic to run data projectors of a similar spec and age that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the DS330 is only £77.

Reasonably Priced

Several Optoma DS330 reviewers who bought it reckoned that it was good value for money. Ddraig Coch gave the Optoma DS330 a rating of 5 stars and mentioned in their review of this projector “For the price I could not fault the Ds330”. Dj Aidy said on Amazon two years ago “Awsome value for money very pleased easy to use” in their Optoma DS330 review. Matt wrote in his Optoma DS330 review on Amazon “Optoma ds330 3d projector, best in price range”.

Good 3D Picture Quality

A few Optoma DS330 reviewers said that it had a good 3D picture quality. Matt mentioned on Amazon “Is the best all round 3d projector in price range, by far” and scored it very highly. Matt also said “5000hr (set to bright mode) full 3d so you can watch sky3d, 3d blu-rays”.

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Based on 1,708 expert and owner reviews, Optoma has good reviews for its projectors. Optoma also has good reviews specifically within its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors range compared to other manufacturers.

Easy to Use

A few people who reviewed it concluded that it was easy to use.

Good Picture Quality

One person who reviewed it wrote that it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

One person who bought it reckoned that it was good quality. Matt wrote on Amazon three years ago “Excellent picture quality, Brightness and Colour” and rated the Optoma DS330 5 stars.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma DS330 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Benq TW523[plb_2029704_price] which has better reviews; or the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Epson EH-TW5100[plb_2591283_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma DS330 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at include a cheaper projector such as the Optoma DX325[plb_1915714_price], or the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price] or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Benq TW523[plb_2029704_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This data projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Number of Colours

The Optoma DS330 has one of the higher numbers of colours (1,073.4 million) amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Projectors of this age and spec have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the DS330 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the Optoma DS330 has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the DS330 is 3,000h, the longest is 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,100h. At 6,500 hours, the Optoma DS330 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 26 decibels, the Optoma DS330 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. The quietest noise level of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the DS330 is 26dB and the loudest is 40dB.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price] (32dB) which is also cheaper.

Light

The Optoma DS330 is one of the lighter comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the DS330 (only 2.2 kilograms) amongst projectors of this age. 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have weights of between 1.3kg and 5.4kg.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma DS330 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of a similar age and spec to the DS330 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Optoma DS330 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Projectors of a comparable spec and age to the DS330 have projector brightness of between 800 ANSI lumens and 4,200 ANSI lumens. The Optoma DS330 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 2,800 ANSI lumens) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Benq TW523[plb_2029704_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Very Small Lamp Power

The average lamp power of data projectors of this type and age is 210W. The Optoma DS330 has a fairly small lamp power (only 190 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the DS330.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the DS330 range from 2W to 20W. At only 2 Watts, the Optoma DS330 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the DS330.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Offset

Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the DS330 the offsets range from 100% to 160%. With an offset of only 115 percent, the Optoma DS330 has one of the smaller offsets amongst multimedia projectors of this age.
