9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Most projectors that came out around the same time as the S-300 do not support 3D. The Canon S-300 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the DELL S500[plb_1538835_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Canon S-300 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the DELL S500[plb_1538835_price] is also worth considering.
