Reasons For

Aiptek MobileCinema A50P Optoma S310
2 Reasons For
Hugely Longer Service Life of Lamp
Aiptek MobileCinema A50P is 20,000h lamp service life, but the Optoma S310 is only a 5,000h lamp service life projector (15,000h shorter).

This indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.

Cheaper to Run by £7,754 Over Five Years
Over five years the Aiptek MobileCinema A50P only costs -£7,696 to run however the Optoma S310 costs £58 to run (-101% more).
Read more Read less
3 Reasons For
3D
The Optoma S310 supports 3D, but the Aiptek MobileCinema A50P does not support 3D.

3D compatible projectors are able to display 3D content. Most projectors will require you to wear special glasses in order to view the 3D effect.

A 3D projector allows you to view the huge range of 3D films and content that is now available.

Read more Read less | Edit
Handheld Remote Control
The Optoma S310 has a handheld remote control, however the Aiptek MobileCinema A50P does not have a handheld remote control.

This indicates whether the projector comes with a handheld remote to control the device or not.

Handheld remotes are very helpful, since they mean you don't have to get up from your comfy seat to tweak the settings on the projector mid-film!
