Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma S331 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors that were launched more than a year ago also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma S321 (£239.99) which is also higher rated.

Projector

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The Optoma S331 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). Across all multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as this projector the resolution ranges from nHD (640x360) (worst) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) (best).

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma S331 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Optoma S321 (£239.99) which has better reviews.

Performance

Average Noise Level

The Optoma S331 has a fairly average noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other 22000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as this data projector.

We compared all the other 34dB noise level multimedia projectors to this projector and we think because of its better review score, the Optoma S321 (£239.99) is also worth considering.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Viewsonic PJD5151 (£222.37) (32dB).
