The DW309 is one of the cheaper to run multimedia projectors of this spec and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the DW309 will cost only £76 over 1 year to run.

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all Optoma data projectors and also specifically for Optoma 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good reviews compared to other brands.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the DW309, the Optoma DW309 supports 3D.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD

The Optoma DW309 supports full HD, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the DW309.

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the DW309 range from 4,000h to 7,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (economy Mode)

The lowest power consumption (economy mode) of data projectors of a similar type and age to the DW309 is 190W, the highest is 370W, and the average power consumption (economy mode) is 240W. With a power consumption (economy mode) of only 191 Watts, the Optoma DW309 has a fairly low power consumption (economy mode) compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the DW309.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma DW309 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than a year also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma DW309 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out more than a year ago. The projector brightnesss of projectors that were released one year ago range from 800 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens.

If you want a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Optoma HD25-LV (3,500 ANSI lumens).
