7 Reasons For

Optoma Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma is one of the superior multimedia projector brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Optoma also has good ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The ZH300UW supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the ZH300UW which do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma ZH300UW has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other latest 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 585W[plb_3745462_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the ZH300UW is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over two times the resolution of a 1024 x 768 (XGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the ZH300UW. 1024 x 768 (XGA) is also supported by this projector. This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA), 800 x 480 (WVGA), 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 720 (HD 720) and 1360 x 768 (WXGA). The best resolution of all newly released projectors is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 32 decibels, the ZH300UW has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the ZH300UW. The noise levels of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the ZH300UW range from 28dB to 41dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

Alternative 32dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available that you might also want to look at include the Acer H6510BD[plb_3155054_price] which has better reviews.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Acer H6520BD[plb_2690133_price] (31dB).

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

Latest similar spec projectors have lamp service lives of between 2,500h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 8,000h. At 20,000 hours, the ZH300UW has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the ZH300UW.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

The lowest power consumption during PowerSave of recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors is 8W and the highest is 620W. At only 225 Watts, the Optoma ZH300UW has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the ZH300UW.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other new 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors, the ZH300UW does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the ZH300UW do not support WiFi connectivity. The ZH300UW is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Canon 0910C005[plb_3740073_price], the Hitachi CP-AX3005[plb_3793552_price], or the Epson EB-585WS[plb_3357332_price].

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

When compared to other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months, the ZH300UW's projector brightness of only 2,700 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest. The dimmest projector brightness of latest 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors is 450 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 10,000 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Canon LV-X310ST[plb_3919355_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-CW301WN[plb_3869672_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).

Only One Audio in Port

Most recently released projectors have between one and two audio in ports, including the ZH300UW which has one audio in port.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The ZH300UW has a quite small optical zoom (only 1 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the ZH300UW. Across all the newly released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors the optical zooms range from 1x to 2x.
