11 Reasons For
Low Running Costs
The X302 is one of the more economic to run projectors of this age and spec that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the X302 is only £77.
On average Optoma 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings as do all data projectors produced by Optoma.
Supports 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years, the Optoma X302 supports 3D image projection.
We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Optoma W316[plb_2136073_price], and the Infocus IN126[plb_2194104_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD6245[plb_1530989_price] is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other data projectors of this spec and age, the Optoma X302 has a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Optoma W316[plb_2136073_price] which has better reviews; or the Viewsonic PJD5453[plb_1499387_price] which is cheaper.
It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Viewsonic PJD6245[plb_1530989_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 commonly supported graphics resolution on comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as it.
Fairly High Number of Colours
Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M. At 1,073.4 million, the Optoma X302 has a fairly high number of colours compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the X302.
+6 More reasons for
Two Built-In Speakers
The Optoma X302 has more built-in speakers than most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the X302. This multimedia projector is a two built-in speaker multimedia projector compared to most of the multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the X302 which only have one built-in speaker.
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The Optoma X302 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the X302. This Optoma multimedia projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector compared to most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.
Quite Big Uniformity
The Optoma X302 has a fairly big uniformity (85 percent) compared to most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The uniformities of data projectors of a similar type and age to the X302 range from 80% to 90%, and the average uniformity is 84%.
Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
The service life of lamp in economic mode of similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the X302 range from 3,000h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,000h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 6,500 hours, the Optoma X302 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the X302.
Quite Quiet Noise Level
Data projectors of this type and age have noise levels of between 26dB and 40dB. The Optoma X302 has a very quiet noise level (only 26 decibels) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the X302.
Projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Viewsonic PJD5234[plb_1481513_price] (32dB and cheaper), or the Optoma X300[plb_1724847_price] (28dB and cheaper).
3 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The Optoma X302 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec also do not support Full HD projection.
Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at include the Optoma S316[plb_2280092_price] which is also higher rated.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Optoma X302 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X302 also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Very Small Optical Zoom
The average optical zoom of comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X302 is 1.2x, and the optical zooms range from 1.1x to 1.7x. The Optoma X302 has one of the smaller optical zooms (only 1.1 times zoom factor) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma X302
Released Over Three Years Ago
This 15000:1 contrast ratio projector has been on the market for over three years.
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma X302 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the X302.
We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD6543W[plb_1530990_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the S316[pl_2280092_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the W316[pl_2136073_price] (3,400 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Optoma; or the Optoma X316[plb_2280095_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

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 X302uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.38 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 10 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
