3 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The 3M X66 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X66.

This data projector supports a graphics resolution of 832 x 624|1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The 3M X66 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the X66 also do not support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq SX914 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The 3M X66 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Panasonic PT-FX400U which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the X66, the 3M X66 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Gigabyte BRIX Projector which also has a higher rating.

Fairly Loud Noise Level

At 36 decibels, the 3M X66 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the X66. The quietest noise level of comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the X66 is 21dB and the loudest is 43dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At only 3,000 hours, the 3M X66 has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age. The average service life of lamp in economic mode of data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the X66 is 4,500h, and the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 600h to 10,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

Data projectors of this age and spec have lamp service lives of between 1,500h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 5,700h. At only 2,000 hours, the 3M X66 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most projectors that were launched around the same time as the X66 have between one and three USB 2.0 ports, including the 3M X66 which has one USB 2.0 port.

4 Other reasons to consider the 3M X66

Average Running Costs

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the X66 will cost £103 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 400:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when 3M released the X66.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the 3M X66 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to look at include the EH-TW490 (£672.61), or the PowerLite Home Cinema 730HD both from Epson which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the HD26 (£348.00) (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the H181X (£399.99) (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma which also has a higher rating.
