6 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the X312 is only £76, which is in the cheapest 20% of all 60 data projectors of a similar type and age.

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Optoma data projectors and also specifically for Optoma projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma X312 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the X312.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the LG PF1500G[plb_2896881_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider including the Viewsonic PJD5150[plb_2895206_price], or the Infocus IN112[plb_2875850_price].

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma X312 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the X312.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the VPL-HW65ES[pl_3022934_price], the VPL-VW350ES[pl_3231569_price], or the VPL-VW600ES[pl_3231568_price] all from Sony which has better reviews.

Quite High Number of Colours

At 1,073.4 million, the Optoma X312 has a quite high number of colours compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago. The average number of colours of data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X312 is 940M, and the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The Optoma X312 has one of the lower power consumption in economy mode (only 191 Watts) amongst projectors of this age. Data projectors of a similar spec and age to the X312 have power consumption in economy mode of between 85W and 430W.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year, the Optoma X312 does not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the VPL-HW65ES[pl_3022934_price], or the VPL-VW320ES[pl_3026757_price] both from Sony or the LG PF1500G[plb_2896881_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Optoma X312 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the X312 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other 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.

Quite Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 190 Watts, the Optoma X312 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the X312. Across all the data projectors of a similar spec and age to the X312 the lamp power range from 50W to 380W, and the average lamp power is 240W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

With a uniformity of only 80 percent, the Optoma X312 has a fairly small uniformity compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than a year. The uniformities of projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X312 range from 80% to 130%, and the average uniformity is 87%.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma X312

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma X312 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the PJD5555[pl_2816556_price], or the PJD5255[pl_2831063_price] both from Viewsonic.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the PJD5550LWS[pl_2894982_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), the PJD6352[pl_2831189_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the PJD6552LW[pl_3220997_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens) all from Viewsonic.
