9 Reasons For

Canon Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Canon multimedia projectors and also specifically for Canon 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors and found that in both cases Canon had good ratings.

Price Has Recently Dropped by £107.55

In the last couple of weeks the WX-520 has dropped in price by £107.55.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Canon WX-520 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the NEC U250X[plb_1531486_price], the Optoma W505[plb_2411917_price], and the Panasonic PT-EX510[plb_2584403_price] is also worth considering.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of projectors of this age and type range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens. The Canon WX-520 has one of the brighter projector brightness (5,200 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

If this 2000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-EX510[plb_2584403_price] (5,300 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Canon WX-520 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that were launched around the same time as the WX-520. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all data projectors of this type and age is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

With a matrix size of 0.7 inches, the Canon WX-520 has one of the bigger matrix sizes amongst data projectors of this age. The smallest matrix size of comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the WX-520 is 0.45" and the biggest is 55".

Chart Edit

Quite Big Digital Zoom

Multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the WX-520 have digital zooms of between 1.3x and 12x. With a digital zoom of 12 times zoom factor, the Canon WX-520 has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the WX-520 do not support Full HD projection. The Canon WX-520 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Sony VPLFH31[plb_1475953_price].

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Canon WX-520 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the NEC U250X[plb_1531486_price], or the Optoma W505[plb_2411917_price] is also worth considering.
