8 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the DW309 will cost only £76 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the more economic to run multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type.

Good Brand

On average Optoma projectors are rated 88 out of 100, which is in the top 22% of all projector brands that we have analysed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma DW309 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the DW309 also support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the X1385WH[pl_3021307_price], and the X1285[pl_3021306_price] both from Acer is also worth considering.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the Acer MR.JLQ11.002[plb_3186447_price].

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma DW309 supports Full HD projection, as do most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the DW309.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might also want to look at including the X1385WH[pl_3021307_price], or the X1285[pl_3021306_price] both from Acer which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Acer MR.JLQ11.002[plb_3186447_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma DW309 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the DW309 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the X1385WH[pl_3021307_price], and the X1285[pl_3021306_price] both from Acer which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Viewsonic PJD6550LW[plb_3369718_price] is also worth considering.
