1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma DS330 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). In addition, this projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

This Optoma multimedia projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector compared to most of the 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the DS330 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago range from 3,000h to 10,000h. At 6,500 hours, the Optoma DS330 has a fairly long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the DS330.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

At only 194 Watts, the Optoma DS330 has a quite low power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the DS330. The average power consumption (PowerSave) of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the DS330 is 200W, and the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.5W to 240W.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across comparable types of projector the best resolution is WXGA (1280x800).
