10 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The X310 has an average running cost of only £80 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the more economic to run multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year.

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

On average data projectors from Optoma are rated 88 out of 100, which is in the top 22% of all projector brands that we have analysed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago which do not support 3D image projection, the Optoma X310 supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma X310 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the X310.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Canon WUX6000[plb_2900094_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Optoma X310 supports a maximum resolution of 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 multimedia projector). This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The resolution of all comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the X310 ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 4096 x 2160 (best).

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

When compared to other projectors that are a comparable age to the X310 that we have checked the service life of lamp in economic mode of, the Optoma X310's service life of lamp in economic mode of 10,000 hours is one of the longest. The service life of lamp in economic mode of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released one year ago range from 3,500h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

The average power consumption during PowerSave of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X310 is 280W. With a power consumption during PowerSave of only 202 Watts, the Optoma X310 has one of the lower power consumption during PowerSave amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than a year ago is 37dB, and the noise levels range from 28dB to 42dB. With a noise level of only 28 decibels, the Optoma X310 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the X310.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The average width of comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than a year is 380mm, and the widths range from 280mm to 500mm. The Optoma X310 is fairly narrow (only 287 millimeters) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Light

2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than a year ago have weights of between 850g and 13kg, and the average weight is 5.7kg. The Optoma X310 is one of the lighter 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the X310 (only 2 kilograms) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Optoma X310 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Canon WUX6000[plb_2900094_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors of this type and age do not support WiFi connectivity. The Optoma X310 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X310 range from 2,700 ANSI lumens to 6,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,400 ANSI lumens. At only 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma X310 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released one year ago.

If this 2000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Sony VPL-FH60[plb_2940427_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens).

Very Small Lamp Power

The lamp power of multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the X310 range from 190W to 370W, and the average lamp power is 290W. At only 190 Watts, the Optoma X310 has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the X310.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The average maximum horizontal synchronization of data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year is 96kHz, and the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 80kHz to 110kHz. At only 91.1 kilohertz, the Optoma X310 has a fairly low maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Optoma X310 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago. Projectors that are a comparable age to the X310 have RMS rated power of between 2W and 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 8.8W.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most projectors of this spec and age have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Optoma X310 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

At only 0.55 inches, the Optoma X310 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the X310. The smallest matrix size of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the X310 is 0.55", the biggest is 0.76", and the average matrix size is 0.66".
