10 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

This projector received an expert rating of 70% from PC Mag.

Running Costs Are Very Low

The IN1142 is one of the cheapest to run data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years that we have analysed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the IN1142 will cost only £25 over 1 year to run.

Infocus Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Infocus projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors Infocus is one of the superior brands.

Good Size

One Infocus IN1142 owner said in their reviews that this projector was lightweight. Pcmag.com mentioned in their review of this projector on expert website PC Mag two years ago “A 700-lumen rating in a small, lightweight projector.” and gave this projector a score of 70 out of 100.

Good Connectivity

One person concluded that this projector was good in terms of HDMI connections. Expert review site Pcmag.com wrote “The only connection choice is an HDMI port” in their review and gave the product a score of 70 out of 100.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Infocus IN1142 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other data projectors of this age and spec which do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think a cheaper projector such as the Optoma S313[plb_2502195_price] or you might consider a better rated projector such as the Optoma S311[plb_2591380_price] are also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Optoma DH1008[plb_2529465_price].

Very Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 30,000 hours, the Infocus IN1142 has one of the longest lamp service lives amongst projectors of this age. The shortest lamp service life of comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 1,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 7,900h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The Infocus IN1142 is one of the lighter similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the IN1142 (only 800 grams) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the IN1142 the weights range from 2.7g to 26kg, and the average weight is 6.2kg.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Projectors that are a similar age to the IN1142 have widths of between 130mm and 750mm, and the average width is 380mm. The width of the Infocus IN1142 of only 170 millimeters is one of the narrowest amongst multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the IN1142.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Infocus IN1142 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors of this type and age which support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma S313[plb_2502195_price]; or the Optoma S311[plb_2591380_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Infocus IN1142 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the IN1142 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma DH1008[plb_2529465_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the data projectors of a comparable type and age to the IN1142 the projector brightness range from 300 ANSI lumens to 9,200 ANSI lumens. The Infocus IN1142 has a very dim projector brightness (only 700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the IN1142.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Optoma S313[plb_2502195_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper) or the Optoma S311[plb_2591380_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most similar spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support WiFi connectivity. The Infocus IN1142 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the LG PW700[plb_2778836_price] is also worth considering.
