6 Reasons For
Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews
Projectors manufactured by Optoma have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just projectors) and found that Optoma also has good reviews across its entire range.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the W320, the Optoma W320 has a built-in speaker.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Optoma W320 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors that have been around for more than a year also support 3D image projection.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The Optoma W320 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the W320. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The resolution of all comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the W320 ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).
Quite High RMS Rated Power
At 16 Watts, the Optoma W320 has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the W320. The average RMS rated power of data projectors that were released around the same time as the W320 is 6.9W.
Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode
Projectors of this spec and age have noise levels in economy mode of between 21dB and 35dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB. The Optoma W320 has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode (only 28 decibels) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

5 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The Optoma W320 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors that came out more than a year ago also do not support Full HD projection.
We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the VPL-VW320ES[pl_3026757_price], or the VPL-VW350ES[pl_3231569_price] both from Sony.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Most projectors of a comparable age and spec to the W320 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Optoma W320 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.
Alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to look at include the Vivitek Qumi Q6[plb_3137053_price] which also has a higher rating.
Only Fixed Zoom Ratio
This projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Very Short Lamp Service Life
At only 3,000 hours, the Optoma W320 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the W320. Projectors that were released one year ago have lamp service lives of between 2,000h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 7,800h.
+2 More reasons against
At 4.9 kilograms, the Optoma W320 is quite heavy compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the W320. Projectors that were released one year ago have weights of between 9.7g and 18kg.
4 Other reasons to consider the Optoma W320
OK Running Costs
Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the W320 will cost £104 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 60 data projectors of a comparable type and age.
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when Optoma released the W320.
Average Projector Brightness
At 4,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma W320 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.
Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the Benq SW921[plb_3181652_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
+2 Other reasons

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Optoma W320uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.51 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 14 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
