7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Optoma 18000:1 contrast ratio data projectors have good reviews on average and across all data projectors Optoma is one of the superior brands.

Running Costs Are Low

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the DS346I is only £76, which makes it one of the cheaper to run similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma DS346I supports Full HD projection. Most of the other 18000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the DS346I do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at including the DH1011i[pl_3015484_price], the EH319UST[pl_3054763_price], or the EH319USTI[pl_3054764_price] all from Optoma.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma DS346I supports 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the DS346I also support 3D image projection.

Other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Optoma DX342[plb_2985138_price].

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the X350[pl_2848586_price], or the W350[pl_2797870_price] both from Optoma is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma DS346I has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the DS346I also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma DX342[plb_2985138_price] is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to consider including the X350[pl_2848586_price], or the W350[pl_2797870_price] both from Optoma.
