Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the W300, the Optoma W300 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Optoma X305[plb_1726305_price].

This Optoma data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution across all projectors of a similar age and spec to the W300.

The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).
