10 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The X310 is in the cheapest 8% of all 14 multimedia projectors of this age and type that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the X310 is only £80.

Optoma Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors produced by Optoma generally have good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the X310 which do not support 3D, the Optoma X310 supports 3D.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the X310, the Optoma X310 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon WUX6000[plb_2900094_price] is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Optoma X310 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). In addition, this Optoma projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all multimedia projectors of this age and type the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) (best).

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the X310 range from 2,000h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,000h. At 10,000 hours, the Optoma X310 has a fairly long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X310.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X310 is 4,300h, and the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 20,000h. With a service life of lamp of 5,000 hours, the Optoma X310 has one of the longer service life of lamps amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The Optoma X310 has a quite low power consumption (PowerSave) (only 202 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The average power consumption (PowerSave) of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released one year ago is 280W, and the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 200W to 380W.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The Optoma X310 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 28 decibels) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The average noise level of comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the X310 is 38dB.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than a year is 9.6kg, and the weights range from 850g to 68kg. The Optoma X310 is quite light (only 2 kilograms) compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the X310.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma X310 does not support full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the X310 which support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Canon WUX6000[plb_2900094_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the X310 do not support wi-Fi. The Optoma X310 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that have been around for more than a year is 2,700 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens. The Optoma X310 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 3,200 ANSI lumens) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the Hitachi CP-EX401[plb_3221443_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens).

Very Small Bulb Power

At only 190 Watts, the Optoma X310 has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than a year ago. Similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the X310 have bulb powers of between 190W and 470W.

Chart Edit

Very Low Horizontal Synchronization (max)

Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X310 the horizontal synchronization (max)s range from 91kHz to 110kHz. At only 91.1 kilohertz, the Optoma X310 has a fairly low horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the X310.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

At only 2 Watts, the Optoma X310 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the X310. The average RMS rated power of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X310 is 8.1W, and the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 16W.

Chart Edit
