12 Reasons For
Running Costs Are Low
Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the S313 will cost only £77 over 1 year to run, which is in the cheapest 16% of all 102 projectors that were released more than two years ago.
Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors
We checked 1,708 user and expert reviews for Optoma multimedia projectors and found that on average Optoma has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Optoma has good reviews specifically within its projectors range.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Unlike most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the S313 which do not have a built-in speaker, the Optoma S313 has a built-in speaker.
There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Optoma S311[plb_2591380_price], or the Infocus IN1142[plb_2279221_price].
Supports 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the S313, the Optoma S313 supports 3D image projection.
We compared all the other projectors which support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma S311[plb_2591380_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The Optoma S313 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors of this age and type. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The worst resolution of all projectors that were released more than two years ago is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).
Quite High Number of Colours
The Optoma S313 has a quite high number of colours (1,073.4 million) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The numbers of colours of similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the S313 range from 1M to 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 810M.
+7 More reasons for
Supports Three Video Colour Modes
The number of video colour modes supported by the Optoma S313 is more than most projectors that were launched around the same time as it. The most frequently supported video colour mode is Dynamic, but this video colour mode is not supported by this data projector. The video colour modes Cinema, Game and sRGB are also supported by this multimedia projector.
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The Optoma S313 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector.
Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Optoma S313 is a two USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the S313 have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.
Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
Projectors that came out more than two years ago have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,000h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,900h. At 7,000 hours, the Optoma S313 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the S313.
The Optoma S313 is one of the lighter projectors of this age and type (only 2.5 kilograms) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the S313 have weights of between 2.7g and 26kg, and the average weight is 6.2kg.
Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode
Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the S313 the noise levels in economy mode range from 20dB to 40dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB. At only 26 decibels, the Optoma S313 has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the S313.
8 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
Most comparable spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support Full HD projection. The Optoma S313 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Optoma S313 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution
The Optoma S313 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080).
A SVGA (800x600) native projector resolution is actually the worst resolution across all projectors of this spec and age.
A 1080p (1920x1080) native projector resolution is the best resolution across comparable types of multimedia projector.
Very Small Lamp Power
Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the S313 the lamp power range from 140W to 420W, and the average lamp power is 250W. The Optoma S313 has a fairly small lamp power (only 190 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the S313.
+5 More reasons against
Very Low RMS Rated Power
The average RMS rated power of comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the S313 is 9.6W. The Optoma S313 has a fairly low RMS rated power (only 2 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the S313.
Only One Built-In Speaker
The Optoma S313 is a one built-in speaker data projector.
Very Small Optical Zoom
Projectors of this age and spec have optical zooms of between 1.1x and 1.9x. The Optoma S313 has one of the smaller optical zooms (only 1.1 times zoom factor) amongst projectors of this age.
Quite Small Matrix Size
Across all the similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the S313 the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.76". With a matrix size of only 0.55 inches, the Optoma S313 has one of the smaller matrix sizes amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Released Over Two Years Ago
This projector was released over two years ago.
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma S313 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the S313.
If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Optoma S311[plb_2591380_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
