11 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The W310 is one of the more economic to run data projectors of this age and spec that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the W310 will cost only £76 over 1 year to run.

Optoma Has Good Projector Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Optoma multimedia projectors and also specifically for Optoma projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Easy to Use

One Optoma W310 owner mentioned in their reviews that this projector was easy to setup. Mr. Malcolm Lucas wrote in his Optoma W310 review in October last year “Good bright picture and easy to set up”.

Good 3D Picture Quality

One Optoma W310 owner who bought the product considered that it had a good 3D picture quality. M J Hillerby rated it 5 stars and mentioned “I use it on HDMI and the 3D is great” in their review of this projector.

Acceptable Noise Level

One Optoma W310 owner who purchased it concluded that it was noisy. M J Hillerby mentioned “Although a little noisier this a a great machine” in their review of this projector.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the W310, the Optoma W310 has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD5255[plb_2831063_price].

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Optoma X402[plb_2809837_price], or the Acer P1385W[plb_3021262_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma W310 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the W310 also support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD5255[plb_2831063_price].

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Optoma X402[plb_2809837_price], or the Acer P1385W[plb_3021262_price] is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma W310 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). This Optoma projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the W310 the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Matrix Size

The Optoma W310 has a quite big matrix size (0.65 inches) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the W310. The smallest matrix size of projectors that were released one year ago is 0.45" and the biggest is 0.74".

Chart Edit

Quite High Number of Colours

With a number of colours of 1,073.4 million, the Optoma W310 has one of the higher numbers of colours amongst data projectors of this age. The average number of colours of projectors that were released more than a year ago is 940M.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The Optoma W310 has a quite quiet noise level (only 29 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the W310. The average noise level of projectors that have been around for a similar time to the W310 is 32dB.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Vivitek Qumi Q4[plb_2735307_price] (36dB and cheaper), or the Optoma W402[plb_2809838_price] (28dB and cheaper).

6 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

One Optoma W310 owner who reviewed it considered that it was not heavy and bulky. M J Hillerby mentioned in their Optoma W310 review on Amazon last year “There were white dots everywhere, as the unit had not let me down in heavy use for 6 years I could not complain”.

Recent Price Increase of £56.38

In the last 40 days the W310 has increased in price by £56.38.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma W310 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Infocus IN119HD[plb_2875969_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the W310, the Optoma W310 does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Vivitek Qumi Q6[plb_3137053_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 195 Watts, the Optoma W310 has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the W310. Similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the W310 have lamp power of between 50W and 380W, and the average lamp power is 240W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

With a uniformity of only 80 percent, the Optoma W310 has a quite small uniformity compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age. Projectors that are a similar age to the W310 have uniformities of between 80% and 130%, and the average uniformity is 87%.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma W310

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many projectors that were launched more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma W310 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the PJD5250[pl_2895208_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), the PJD5555[pl_2816556_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the PJD5255[pl_2831063_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) all from Viewsonic which also has a higher rating.
