8 Reasons For

Optoma Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Optoma projectors and also specifically for Optoma 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Good Picture Quality

One Optoma X304M owner wrote in their reviews that it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

One person who bought this projector thought it was good quality. Four years ago It Reviews.com wrote on IT Reviews.com “Good to excellent data image quality” but in spite of that they only gave the product a rating of 60 out of 100.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the X304M which do not support 3D, the Optoma X304M supports 3D.

Alternative data projectors which support 3D currently available that you might also want to consider include the TH682[pl_2448398_price], or the W1400[pl_1731595_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DH1017[plb_2104607_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years, the Optoma X304M has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Benq TH682[plb_2448398_price], the Epson PowerLite 99W[plb_2193326_price], or the Optoma DH1017[plb_2104607_price] which has better reviews.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

Not Good in Terms of Size

One person who bought the product thought it was not heavy and bulky. Pcmag.com mentioned in their review of the Optoma X304M on expert review site PC Mag “Only a little heavier than 500-lumen LED-based portable projectors” but in spite of that they still gave it a rating of 4 stars.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to consider include the TH682[pl_2448398_price], or the W1400[pl_1731595_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DH1017[plb_2104607_price] which also has a higher rating.
