Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma X303 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of their better review scores, the Optoma X306ST, or the Infocus IN116A.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma X303 does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Epson EB-Z10005U, the Infocus IN118HD, or the Viewsonic PRO8600.

3D-Ready

The Optoma X303 is 3D-ready. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago also are 3D-ready.

Projector

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma X303 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think because of their better review scores, the PJD6245, and the PJD5483S both from Viewsonic are also worth considering.

If you want a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the X316 (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the X306ST (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD6350 (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
