Good 3D Picture Quality

Other

Released Over Two Years Ago

This data projector has been on the market since February 2015.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma W310 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Optoma S313 (£274) which is cheaper; or the X312 (£304.98), and the H100 (£299.99) both from Optoma and both of which have better reviews are also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma W310 does not support full HD. Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as this projector also do not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider including the Optoma DH1008 (£399.99).

HD-Ready

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and type the projector brightnesses range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 4,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,200 ANSI lumens. The Optoma W310 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 3,000 ANSI lumens) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Optoma S313 (£274) which is cheaper.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Optoma X312 (£304.98) (3,200 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
