7 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The DS311 is in the cheapest 12% of all 79 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the DS311 will cost only £77 over 1 year to run.

Good Brand

Optoma 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good reviews on average and across all projectors Optoma is one of the superior brands.

Supports 3D

The Optoma DS311 supports 3D, as do most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MS517[plb_1463623_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support 3D including the Acer X133[plb_2780263_price], or the Benq MX525[plb_2415515_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the DS311, the Optoma DS311 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MS517[plb_1463623_price] is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Acer X1273[plb_2193441_price], or the Benq MX525[plb_2415515_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma DS311 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This Optoma projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the DS311 the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

Light

The lightest data projector of this age and spec is 1.3kg heavy, the heaviest is 6.2kg, and the average weight is 2.8kg. With a weight of only 2.2 kilograms, the Optoma DS311 is fairly light compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

When compared to other projectors of this spec and age that we have checked, the noise level (economic mode) of the Optoma DS311 of only 26 decibels is one of the quietest. Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the DS311 the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 38dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma DS311 does not support full HD. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the DS311 also do not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Acer X133[plb_2780263_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors that have been around for around the same time as the DS311 do not support wi-Fi. The Optoma DS311 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma DS311 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is actually the worst resolution amongst all 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years.

The best resolution across similar types of data projector is WXGA (1280x800).

Very Small Bulb Power

Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years the bulb powers range from 190W to 310W, and the average bulb power is 210W. At only 190 Watts, the Optoma DS311 has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the DS311.

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma DS311

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this data projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

The Optoma DS311 has a pretty average projector brightness (2,800 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the DS311.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MS517[plb_1463623_price].

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer X133[plb_2780263_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).
