Has a Built-In Speaker
The Optoma W320UST has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the W320UST also have a built-in speaker.
There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Benq SW921[plb_3181652_price].

The W320UST supports 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the W320UST also support 3D image projection.
Alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to consider include the Benq SW921[plb_3181652_price] which has better reviews.
Fairly Bright Projector Brightness
At 4,000 ANSI lumens, the W320UST has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the W320UST. Multimedia projectors of this age and type have projector brightness of between 500 ANSI lumens and 8,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens.
If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Benq SW921[plb_3181652_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the W320UST is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Projectors of this type and age graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).
Two HDMI Ports
The W320UST has more HDMI ports than most of the data projectors that are a comparable age to the W320UST. Most of the projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the W320UST only have one HDMI port, however this multimedia projector has two HDMI ports.

Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Optoma W320UST is a two USB 2.0 port projector.
Quite High RMS Rated Power
With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the W320UST has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the W320UST. The RMS rated power of projectors that came out around the same time as the W320UST range from 1.5W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.9W.
Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode
The noise levels in economy mode of projectors that came out more than a year ago range from 21dB to 35dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB. With a noise level in economy mode of only 28 decibels, the Optoma W320UST has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the W320UST.
6 Reasons Against
£146.62 Price Increase
In the last fortnight the price of the W320UST has increased by £146.62.
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The W320UST does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the W320UST also do not support Full HD projection.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The W320UST does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the W320UST also do not support WiFi connectivity.
After checking the price of 53 data projectors that were launched more than a year ago they range in price from £158 to £7,420. We think that this multimedia projector looks expensive compared to other data projectors that were launched more than a year ago.
+3 More reasons against
