10 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The S302 has an average running cost of only £84 over 1 year based on typical energy prices, which is in the cheapest 15% of all 41 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than a year.

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma has good average reviews across all projectors, however it has unexceptional reviews specifically for its 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the S302, including the Optoma S302, support 3D image projection.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other one year old 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors, including the Optoma S302, have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Optoma S302 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 multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year. 1024 x 768 (XGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Projectors that are a similar age to the S302 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors that support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA) and we think a higher rated product such as the Optoma X401 (£663.56) are also worth considering.

If the resolution of this 15000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector is not high enough for you then you might want to also look at the Optoma W501 (1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 640 x 480 (VGA), 800 x 600 (SVGA)).

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Optoma S302 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the one year old 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors. This Optoma projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector compared to most of the comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the S302 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Supports Six Video Modes

The number of supported video mode on the Optoma S302 is more than most projectors of a comparable age and type to it. This data projector supports a 720p video mode, which is the most commonly supported video mode supported by projectors of a comparable age and spec to the S302. The video modes "1080i", "480i", "480p", "576i" and "576p" are also supported by this multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 6,500 hours, the Optoma S302 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are more than a year old. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the S302 the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 1,000h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,000h.

Chart Edit

Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors of a similar spec and age to the S302 range from 26dB to 39dB, and the average noise level is 32dB. With a noise level of only 26 decibels, the Optoma S302's noise level is one of the quietest amongst similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the S302.

It is worth also looking at other 26dB noise level multimedia projectors including a better rated multimedia projector such as the EH300 (£668.76), or the X302 (£409.51) both from Optoma.

Very Light

The average weight of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the S302 is 4,300g, and the weights range from 1,300g to 24,000g. At only 2,210 grams, the Optoma S302 is quite light compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the S302.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the comparable spec multimedia projectors that are one year old do not support Full HD projection, including the Optoma S302.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are older than a year, the Optoma S302 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the LG BG630 are also worth considering.

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The Optoma S302 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A SVGA (800x600) native projector resolution is in fact the worst resolution across all projectors of this type and age.

The best resolution across comparable types of multimedia projector is WUXGA (1920x1200).

There are a number of different data projectors that have a resolution of SVGA (800x600) that you might want to also look at including a higher rated product such as the Optoma S316 (£322.89), or the Infocus IN122A (£116.92).

If the resolution of this multimedia projector is not high enough for you then you might want to also look at the Optoma X302 (£409.51) (XGA (1024x768 and higher rated) and higher rated).

Very Small Lamp Power

Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are older than a year the lamp power range from 190W to 2,800W, and the average lamp power is 350W. The Optoma S302 has one of the smaller lamp power (only 190 Watts) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small RMS Rated Power

With a RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Optoma S302 has a quite small RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the S302. The smallest RMS rated power of multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the S302 is 2W, the biggest is 30W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.9W.

1 Other reason to consider the Optoma S302

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma S302 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the S302.

It is worth also looking at different 3000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors including a better rated projector such as the Optoma X302 (£409.51), or the Viewsonic PJD6383S (£699.34).

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to also look at the S316 (£322.89) (3200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the X316 (£318.99) (3200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Optoma.
