Optoma W304M Review
3100 lumens and just 3.3 lbs
May 17, 2013
If you've been considering buying an LED-based, 500-lumen projector because you need the portability, but you've hesitated because of the low brightness, the Optoma W304M may be the alternative you've been looking for. It weighs just a few ounces more than those LED-based models, at 3.3 pounds, but it boasts a 3100-lumen rating, making it a light canon by comparison.
Built around a standard lamp and a DLP chip, the W304M offers the same 1280x800 native resolution as typical LED-based portable projectors. That makes it appropriate for most common business use, from a PowerPoint presentation to moderately large sections of spreadsheets or documents when you need the text to be readable.
Even better, along with brightness and resolution, the W304M delivers excellent data image quality. And although its lamp isn't meant to last the life of the projector, as with LED-based models, it's rated for up to 5000 hours in Eco mode, which is longer than many projectors offer. Just as important, it's only a small step up in price compared with its LED-based, 500-lumen competition, at $849 street. That makes it light, bright, and affordable too.
