10 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The average 1 year running cost of the BR324 is only £66 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the cheaper to run data projectors that have been available for more than a year.

Optoma Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Data projectors manufactured by Optoma have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just data projectors) and found that Optoma also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the BR324 which do not support full HD, the Optoma BR324 supports full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this data projector and we think the Sony VPL-VW600ES[plb_3231568_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
