7 Reasons For

Canon Has Good Projector Reviews

Canon data projectors have an average rating of 79 out of 100, which is in the top 48% of all projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Just Released Six Months Ago

This multimedia projector is one of the latest projectors to be released. As such it is likely to use better technology than some of the older projectors.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 8,000 ANSI lumens, the Canon LX-MU800Z has a very bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for the last year. Recently released projectors have projector brightness of between 37 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD Projection

The Canon LX-MU800Z supports Full HD projection. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched in the last year do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the LX-MU800Z is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's 11% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the LX-MU800Z is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). In addition, this Canon projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all similar spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the LX-MU800Z.

Amongst similar types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other recently released projectors have a built-in speaker, however the Canon LX-MU800Z does not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider including the Epson EB-L1200U[plb_3359736_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The LX-MU800Z does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors that have been available for the last year also do not support WiFi connectivity.
