Optoma X318STe Projector
The Optoma X318STe is a very bright, short throw projector which is ideal for the classroom or meeting room. At 3700 lumens, it is bright enough to display a clear image even in a very light room. Keep the lights on whilst teaching or running a sales pitch, and you won't have to worry about the audience seeing the image. The XGA resolution is suitable for PowerPoint, images and short video clips. If you are showing movies or long videos then it is best to go for WXGA resolution as this is widescreen.
Just Projectors review of the Optoma X318STe
You won’t have to worry about stretching your pixels. However, when presenting the XGA resolution will still give you a sharp image. This along with a 22,000:1 contrast ratio will ensure that content will be delivered with impressive clarity. The built in 10W speaker is a nice touch, and in most small to medium sized rooms would cope well by itself and wouldn't require an additional audio to be installed. OK the sound quality isn't brilliant but as a compliment to a presentation or a short video clip then it will be more than sufficient. The range of inputs is impressive, with 2 x VGA, 2 x HDMI as well as various audio inputs and outputs you will be able to connect any modern laptop or PC. This is great if you have different people bringing their laptops to the meeting room table, as you know they'll always be able to connect easily.
The X318STe has some good ECO features which will allow you to preserve the lamp life and lower the power consumption. The Eco AV mute button will take the power down by 70% which could be useful during school lunch breaks or breaks between meetings where you don't necessarily want to turn the projector off. Another strong point of the X318STe is its ability to display a very large image, something which not a lot of short throws can do. This public sector projector comes with a 3 year projector and lamp warranty. For more information please check out the PDF link on the left hand side.

On higher end models we can arrange a loan or demo. We think most people should buy HD resolution , they are so affordable now and you wouldn't buy a 5 year old laptop so why buy SVGA which is over 20 years old. Yes XGA & WXGA are ideal for simple presentations and education use but we have all been use to decent home TV's or high resolution phones or tables so why put a huge image on the wall/screen which is inferior. There are some great brands out there BenQ, Infocus, Epson and less known ones like EIKI or Vivitek. Yes you can buy the wrong one, this is why we still offer advice rather than just an add to cart website. We have a price promise, we see the models, we often put one against another and see which one is best.
