8 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The X300 is one of the cheaper to run projectors of a similar age and spec that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the X300 will cost only £79 over 1 year to run.

Good Brand

Optoma is one of the better rated multimedia projector brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and Optoma also has good reviews for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma X300 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors of this type and age.

Alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to look at include the Optoma S316[plb_2280092_price] which has better reviews; or the Viewsonic PJD5234[plb_1481513_price] which is cheaper.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Infocus IN2124A[plb_2194105_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma X300 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Viewsonic PJD5234[plb_1481513_price] or you might consider a higher scoring data projector such as the Optoma S316[plb_2280092_price] are also worth considering.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider including the Infocus IN2124A[plb_2194105_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This data projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is the most frequently supported graphics resolution on data projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 6,500 hours, the Optoma X300 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years. The service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors of this spec and age range from 3,000h to 20,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The Optoma X300 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 28 decibels) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X300 the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB.

If you are not bothered about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the PJD5234[pl_1481513_price] (32dB), or the PJD5134[pl_1527048_price] (32dB) both from Viewsonic which is also cheaper.

Very Light

The weights of projectors of a comparable age and type to the X300 range from 1.3kg to 27kg. With a weight of only 2.1 kilograms, the Optoma X300 is one of the lighter projectors of a comparable spec and age to the X300 amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma X300 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the X300 also do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might want to look at including the Optoma S316[plb_2280092_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago do not support WiFi connectivity. The Optoma X300 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X300 range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,200 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Optoma X300 has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Alternative 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available that you might also want to consider include the PJD5234[pl_1481513_price], or the PJD5134[pl_1527048_price] both from Viewsonic which is cheaper.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Optoma X316[plb_2280095_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper) or the Optoma S316[plb_2280092_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Very Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 190 Watts, the Optoma X300 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X300. The lamp power of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X300 range from 190W to 2,400W.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of projectors of a similar age and spec to the X300 is 6.8W, and the RMS rated power range from 2W to 30W. With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Optoma X300 has one of the lower RMS rated power amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years the uniformities range from 80% to 90%. At only 80 percent, the Optoma X300 has a fairly small uniformity compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Only Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Optoma X300 is a two VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other data projectors that were released around the same time as the X300 have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.
