7 Reasons For

Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Optoma has good average ratings for its multimedia projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Reasonably Priced

One Optoma X305 reviewer who bought this projector reckoned that it was good value for money. Two years ago Fiona Campbell said in her review on Amazon “Excellent for the money the 3d is amazing”.

Good 3D Picture Quality

One Optoma X305 reviewer who reviewed the product considered that it had a good 3D picture quality.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma X305 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the W770ST[pl_1561748_price], and the W750[pl_1561747_price] both from Benq which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Optoma GT1070[plb_2503383_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the X305, the Optoma X305 supports 3D.

Alternative data projectors which support 3D currently available which you might want to consider include the W770ST[pl_1561748_price], or the W750[pl_1561747_price] both from Benq which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support 3D including the Optoma GT1070[plb_2503383_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Optoma X305 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of this spec and age. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this Optoma data projector. This data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma X305 does not support full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the X305 also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Optoma GT1080[plb_2415608_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma X305 does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the X305 also do not support wi-Fi.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi which you might want to look at including the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price].
