7 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Optoma projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors Optoma is one of the superior brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that were released more than a year ago, the Optoma S312 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think a cheaper projector such as the Acer P1385W[plb_3021262_price], and the Optoma X402[plb_2809837_price] or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Viewsonic PJD5553LWS[plb_2913259_price] are also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma S312 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the S312.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Acer P1385W[plb_3021262_price], or the Optoma X402[plb_2809837_price] which is cheaper; or the Viewsonic PJD5553LWS[plb_2913259_price] which has better reviews.

The average number of colours of projectors that were launched around the same time as the S312 is 940M. The Optoma S312 has one of the higher numbers of colours (1,073.4 million) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Alternative 29dB noise level data projectors currently available which you might want to look at include the Optoma W310[plb_2809879_price] which is cheaper.
