8 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Based on 1,708 expert and owner reviews, Optoma has good ratings for its multimedia projectors. Optoma also has good ratings specifically for its projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma S310 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the S310.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma S310 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). In addition, this data projector supports a graphics resolution of 800 x 600 (SVGA). Projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the S310 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Quite High Number of Colours

The Optoma S310 has a quite high number of colours (1,073.4 million) compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the S310. The numbers of colours of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the S310 range from 1M to 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 810M.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of multimedia projectors of this age and type is 2,000h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,900h. At 7,000 hours, the Optoma S310 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the S310.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 28 decibels, the Optoma S310 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago. The average noise level of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the S310 is 32dB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 28dB noise level projectors currently available including the Viewsonic Pro9000[plb_1517329_price] which has better reviews.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the GT760[pl_1995666_price] (29dB), or the H180X[pl_1986349_price] (28dB) both from Optoma.

Narrow

The narrowest multimedia projector that was launched around the same time as the S310 is 130mm wide, the widest is 750mm, and the average width is 380mm. With a width of only 287 millimeters, the Optoma S310 is quite narrow compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the S310.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and spec the weights range from 2.7g to 26kg, and the average weight is 6.2kg. With a weight of only 2 kilograms, the Optoma S310 is one of the lighter projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the S310 amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most projectors of a comparable age and spec to the S310 do not have a built-in speaker. The Optoma S310 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to look at including the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the S310, the Optoma S310 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Panasonic PTAE7000U[plb_1897671_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma S310 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the S310 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the LG PW700[plb_2778836_price], or the Optoma W305ST[plb_1726307_price] is also worth considering.

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The Optoma S310 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.

A SVGA (800x600) native projector resolution is actually the worst resolution amongst all multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the S310.

The best resolution amongst comparable types of data projector is 1080p (1920x1080).

Quite Small Lamp Power

The lamp power of projectors that are a comparable age to the S310 range from 140W to 420W, and the average lamp power is 250W. The Optoma S310 has a quite small lamp power (only 190 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the S310.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Optoma S310 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The Optoma S310 is a one USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the S310 have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

With a matrix size of only 0.55 inches, the Optoma S310 has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years. The matrix sizes of projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the S310 range from 0.45" to 0.76", and the average matrix size is 0.64".

3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma S310

Running Costs Are Average

The S310 has an average running cost of £80 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 102 projectors of this spec and age.

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this multimedia projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

The Optoma S310 has a pretty standard projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the S310.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Optoma HD36[plb_2569323_price], or the Epson PowerLite 98[plb_2397986_price] which has better reviews.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Optoma S311[plb_2591380_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
