Quick Review Optoma W304M WXGA 3100 Lumen Full 3D Portable DLP Projector with HDMI

9 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

Based on three expert reviews from sites including PC Mag, projectorcentral.com and IT Reviews.com the average expert rating of this projector is 73 out of 100.

Optoma Has Good Projector Reviews

We checked 1,708 expert and user reviews for Optoma data projectors and found that on average Optoma has good reviews. We also found that Optoma has good reviews specifically within its projectors range.

Reasonably Priced

One person wrote in their reviews that the Optoma W304M was cheap. Itreviews.com wrote on expert review site IT Reviews.com “Not much more expensive, the” however they only gave it a score of 60 out of 100.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma W304M has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the W304M which do not have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper data projector such as the Acer H7532[plb_1478178_price] or you might consider a higher scoring data projector such as the Optoma EH200ST[plb_2415609_price], or the Viewsonic PJD6544W[plb_1536138_price].

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the EH200ST[pl_2415609_price], and the GT1080[pl_2415608_price] both from Optoma which has better reviews; or the Acer H7532[plb_1478178_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
