Optoma W316 projector review

 

Many of today's business/education projectors try to be slim and svelte, blending beautifully into the background, even if their hardware capabilities fall considerably short of impressing. The W316, though, is not cut from the same cloth. Its bulky...

Optoma W316 Wxga

 

Easy to use and produces a good picture

No lense cap provided and a bit fiddly getting it in and out of the case, but thay does not really detract from its very good points

Optoma W316 Wxga

 

The selection of connections all located in one panel on the side. Ease of use and daylight projection capability.

Disappointed the lens cap mentioned and shown in the user guide is not supplied in the UK. Why not, it is a universal requirement.
