Just Projectors review on the Optoma X342e: The resolution of the X342e is XGA which is suitable for presentations and short video clips. If you want to show longer videos then we recommend going up to WXGA resolution which is widescreen so when you watch movies, your image will not stretch. Take a look at some alternatives below, it is only slightly more money. However, when presenting, this projector will give you a clear and sharp image throughout the day.
What makes the Optoma X342e good for business meetings is the brightness of 3700 lumens which means that you can leave the lights on and blinds open during meetings and still be able to project clearly in a bright room to a large audience. The high contrast ratio of 22,000:1 gives a very sharp image so whether it's a spreadsheet or a short video clip, there will be no loss of clarity, just added depth making viewing more entertaining.
It is very simple to connect to a Mac, PC or other device such as tablet or smartphone, as it has both a HDMI and a VGA input so all you need is a cable to hook it up to and it will power up in less than 10 seconds. You can connect to two sources at the same time without swapping the cables around. There is also a USB port for PC-free presentations. This is handy as you don't always have to carry your laptop around. It is lightweight so it is easily portable. It can also be installed, if you are looking at going down this route, give us a call and we can help you with this.
You can also install this projector and along with the vertical keystone correction, this makes it easier and gives you slightly more freedom in where you mount your projector. If you are interested in this, give us a call and we can talk you through the process.
It Overall, this is a modern all round projector with added connectivity options at a great price. Check out the PDF to the left for more information.

Add more depth to your image with a high contrast projector. Compared to competing technology, Optoma DLP projectors provide you with brighter whites and ultra-rich blacks, images come alive and text appears crisp and clear - ideal for business and education applications.
Eco+ technology brings together high contrast, improved lamp life and energy saving features that are easy to use while reducing power consumption.
Using the specially designed lamp modes, you can reduce the power consumption by up to 70%. Each mode also has a positive effect on the lamp life, while lowering the total cost of ownership and reducing maintenance.
Stay in control of your presentation with Eco AV mute. Direct your audience's attention away from the screen by blanking the image when no longer needed. This also reduces the power consumption by up to 70%, further prolonging the life of your lamp.
The projector will start up instantly when power is supplied to the unit. This eliminates the need to manually turn on the projector via the remote control or the keypad, ideal for use in rooms with a “master” power switch.
Power off your projector immediately or directly at the mains. This means you don’t have to wait for the projector to cool down before turning it off.
There may be instances when the projector is left running when not in use. To help save energy, the "auto power off" feature automatically turns off the projector after a set period of time if it is not being used.

About Just Projectors
We provide advice on the phone listening to your requirements we are able to help you get the right one as we have trained staff . We have a network of installers to cover your area. 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.
