Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Optoma DX325 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the DX325 which support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price], or the Acer X123[plb_2717080_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the DX325 have projector brightness of between 800 ANSI lumens and 4,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the Optoma DS325[plb_1920804_price] which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Benq TW523[plb_2029704_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
