8 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The S340 is one of the more economic to run recently released projectors that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the S340 is only £76.

Optoma Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma is one of the better rated multimedia projector brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and Optoma also has good reviews for its projectors.

Only Released Five Months Ago

This projector has only been on the market for five months. Newer multimedia projectors like this one are likely to use more advanced technology.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma S340 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other similar spec projectors that were released in the last year.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the S341[pl_3762889_price], or the S331[pl_3718068_price] both from Optoma which is cheaper; or the Optoma S321[plb_3539131_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma S340 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other recently released multimedia projectors also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to consider including a cheaper projector such as the S341[pl_3762889_price], or the S331[pl_3718068_price] both from Optoma or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Optoma H183X[plb_3381810_price].

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The Optoma S340 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA) and 1366 x 768 and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). Across all projectors that are a comparable age to the S340 the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the S340 is 22dB and the loudest is 40dB. At only 29 decibels, the Optoma S340 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the S340.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 29dB noise level data projectors currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Optoma S341[plb_3762889_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Optoma H183X[plb_3381810_price].

Very Light

The average weight of recently released projectors is 6.3kg, and the weights range from 2.7g to 28kg. With a weight of only 2.2 kilograms, the Optoma S340 is quite light compared to most of the other recently released projectors.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the S340, the Optoma S340 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the S321[pl_3539131_price], or the H183X[pl_3381810_price] both from Optoma or the Optoma S341[plb_3762889_price] are also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other recently released projectors, the Optoma S340 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Sony MP-CL1[plb_3151534_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma S340 is SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is actually the worst resolution amongst all new projectors.

Amongst comparable types of projector the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200).
