Quick Review Optoma W304M WXGA 3100 Lumen Full 3D Portable DLP Projector with HDMI
Review máy chi?u Optoma W304M

8 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

Based on three expert reviews from sites including PC Mag, projectorcentral.com and IT Reviews.com this data projector has an average expert rating of 73 out of 100.

Good Brand

On average Optoma multimedia projectors have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all projectors produced by Optoma.

Reasonably Priced

One Optoma W304M owner thought the Optoma W304M was cheap. Four years ago Itreviews.com said on IT Reviews.com “Not much more expensive, the” in their review of the Optoma W304M.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma W304M has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Vivitek Qumi Q7[plb_2086346_price], the Epson EB-1771[plb_1748930_price], or the Optoma EH200ST[plb_2415609_price].

Supports 3D

The Optoma W304M supports 3D, as do most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the W304M.

Other projectors which support 3D currently available which you might also want to look at include the EH200ST[pl_2415609_price], or the HD36[pl_2569323_price] both from Optoma or the Vivitek Qumi Q7[plb_2086346_price] which has better reviews.

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The Optoma W304M has a maximum maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 20% more maximum digital resolution than a 1600 x 1200 pixels multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found maximum digital resolution.

This multimedia projector's maximum digital resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) is actually the best maximum digital resolution amongst all data projectors of this age and type.

A 1600 x 1200 pixels maximum digital resolution is the worst maximum digital resolution amongst comparable types of multimedia projector.

Read more Less Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 5kg. The Optoma W304M is one of the lighter multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the W304M (only 1.5 kilograms) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

A number of Optoma W304M reviewers mentioned in their reviews that the Optoma W304M was not heavy and bulky. Four years ago expert review site Pcmag.com wrote in their review of the Optoma W304M “Less than a pound heavier th” but they rated the Optoma W304M 70 out of 100.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma W304M does not support full HD. Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the EH200ST[pl_2415609_price], or the HD36[pl_2569323_price] both from Optoma or the Epson EH-TW5910[plb_1717178_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W304M do not support wi-Fi. The Optoma W304M is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the GP30[pl_2564760_price], or the GP20[pl_2231335_price] both from Benq which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated powers of multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the W304M range from 1W to 30W. When compared to other projectors of this spec and age, the RMS rated power of the Optoma W304M of only 1 Watt is one of the lowest.

Chart Edit

5 Other reasons to consider the Optoma W304M

OK Running Costs

The average running cost of the W304M is £94 over 1 year based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 118 projectors of this age and spec.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Optoma released the W304M.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma W304M is WXGA (1280x800). That's 51% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

The Optoma W304M has a relatively standard projector brightness (3,100 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the X351[pl_2821583_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the W351[pl_2821580_price] (3,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Optoma or the Epson EB-536Wi[plb_2697341_price] (3,400 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Tendency to show rainbow artifacts makes video suitable for short clips only
Underpowered audio
