Energy

Running Costs Are Low

The W312 is one of the more economic to run projectors of a comparable age and spec that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the W312 is only £76.


Other

Released Over Two Years Ago

Optoma released the W312 in February 2015.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma W312 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Viewsonic PJD5550LWS (£476.78) which has better reviews.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to look at including the DH1008 (£399.99), or the DH1009 (£429.99) both from Optoma.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma W312 does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to this projector also do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the DH1008 (£399.99), or the DH1009 (£429.99) both from Optoma are also worth considering.
