9 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The W312 is in the cheapest 10% of all 20 projectors of a similar type and age that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the W312 will cost only £76 over 1 year to run.

Good Brand

Data projectors manufactured by Optoma are some of the better data projectors according to average user and expert reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the W312, the Optoma W312 supports 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider including the Acer X113P[plb_3043847_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma W312 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the W312 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the Acer P1185[plb_2899119_price] is also worth considering.
