Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma S302 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including the Viewsonic PJD5232 (£308.66) which has better reviews; or the Optoma X316 (£318.99) which is cheaper.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Vivitek D552 (£325.00) is also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

The Optoma S302 has a fairly average projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to this multimedia projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Viewsonic PJD6543W (£403.52) which has better reviews.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Optoma S316 (£280.80) (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Viewsonic PJD6350 (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) or the Optoma X316 (£318.99) (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
