15 Reasons For

Good Expert Reviews

This projector received an expert rating of 80% from PC Advisor.co.uk.

Running Costs Are Very Low

The W316 is in the cheapest 9% of all 60 projectors of this age and spec that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the W316 will cost only £76 over 1 year to run.

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

15000:1 contrast ratio projectors produced by Optoma have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Optoma also has good ratings across its entire range.

Nice Design

A few Optoma W316 reviewers said in their reviews that the product was good looking. One Optoma W316 reviewer who purchased the product reckoned that it was a good design.

Easy to Use

One person wrote that the Optoma W316 was easy to setup. Stephenh316 said on Amazon “Easy to set up and use”.

Reasonably Priced

A few Optoma W316 owners reckoned that it was good value for money. Stephenh316 wrote “Good product for the price” in their review. Techworld.com mentioned in their review “The W316 is remarkable for its price” .

Good Size

A few people said in their reviews that the product was thin. Techworld.com said “Most of today's business projectors try to be slim and svelte, blending beautifully into the background, even if their hardware capabilities fall considerably short of impressing” in their Optoma W316 review. Pcadvisor.co.uk rated the Optoma W316 80 out of 100 and said on PC Advisor.co.uk “Many of today's business/education projectors try to be slim and svelte, blending beautifully into the background, even if their hardware capabilities fall considerably short of impressing”.

Supports 3D

The Optoma W316 supports 3D, as do most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the IN124[pl_2194103_price], or the IN126[pl_2194104_price] both from Infocus or the Epson EH-TW570[plb_2577305_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma W316 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD6683WS[plb_1514463_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Infocus IN124[plb_2194103_price], or the Epson EH-TW570[plb_2577305_price] is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This multimedia projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is the most commonly supported supported graphics resolutions on 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma W316 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution. The best resolution of all multimedia projectors of this type and age is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

Across all the projectors that have been around for more than two years the service life of lamps range from 2,000h to 30,000h. The Optoma W316 has one of the longer service life of lamps (10,000 hours) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

At only 29 decibels, the Optoma W316 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the W316. The noise levels of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the W316 range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

At only 191 Watts, the Optoma W316 has a quite low power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the W316. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the W316 the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.37W to 290W.

Chart Edit

Very High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

Across all the multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the W316 the horizontal synchronization (max)s range from 91kHz to 92kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 91kHz. When compared to other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the W316, the horizontal synchronization (max) of the Optoma W316 of 91.1 kilohertz is one of the highest.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the W316 do not support full HD. The Optoma W316 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Viewsonic PJD6683WS[plb_1514463_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma W316 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the W316 also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

Projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W316 have bulb powers of between 190W and 2,400W. The Optoma W316 has a fairly small bulb power (only 190 Watts) compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the W316.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated powers of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W316 range from 2W to 30W. The Optoma W316 has a quite low RMS rated power (only 2 Watts) compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Low Vertical Synchronization (max)

With a vertical synchronization (max) of only 85 kilohertz, the Optoma W316 has one of the lower vertical synchronization (max)s amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have vertical synchronization (max)s of between 85kHz and 240kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The smallest optical zoom of data projectors that are a comparable age to the W316 is 1.1x, the biggest is 1.7x, and the average optical zoom is 1.3x. At only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Optoma W316 has a fairly small optical zoom compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the W316.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma W316

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when Optoma released the W316.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,400 ANSI lumens, the Optoma W316 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the W316.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the IN124[pl_2194103_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the IN126[pl_2194104_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens) both from Infocus.
