13 Reasons For

Infocus Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors produced by Infocus are some of the better projectors according to average reviews from owners and experts.

Nice Design

One Infocus IN5144a owner who reviewed the product thought it was ugly. Whathifi.com said “That's not to say it's unattractive – it just appears to mean business, regardless of your room's aesthetics” in their Infocus IN5144a review.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Infocus IN5144a has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the IN5144a.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Benq SH960[plb_1385329_price], the NEC V281W[plb_2020837_price], or the Epson EB-430 LW[plb_1837070_price].

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

Data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the IN5144a have projector brightness of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens. The Infocus IN5144a has a quite bright projector brightness (5,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the IN5144a.

We compared all the other 5,500 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq SH960[plb_1385329_price], and the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] is also worth considering.

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

Chart Edit

Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

Across all the multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the IN5144a the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 91kHz to 110kHz. With a maximum horizontal synchronization of 106 kilohertz, the IN5144a has one of the highest maximum horizontal synchronization amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite High Maximum Vertical Synchronization

Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz. The IN5144a has one of the higher maximum vertical synchronization (120 kilohertz) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The IN5144a has more HDMI ports than most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years. Most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago only have one HDMI port, however this multimedia projector has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

Most multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the IN5144a have between one and two audio in ports, including the IN5144a which has two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

13 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This projector received an expert rating of 60% from whathifi.com. If all the projectors of a similar spec and age are ranked by average expert review score then this 3000:1 contrast ratio projector is in the bottom 20%.

Unacceptable Noise Level

A few Infocus IN5144a reviewers said in their reviews that it was not noisy. Whathifi.com mentioned “Noisy picture”.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Infocus IN5144a does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the IN5144a also do not support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Infocus IN3124[plb_1475112_price], or the Epson V11H475020[plb_2123586_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of a comparable spec and age to the IN5144a do not support Full HD projection. The IN5144a is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq SH960[plb_1385329_price], the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the IN5144a, the IN5144a does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the EB-430 LW[pl_1837070_price], or the EB-1400[pl_1850713_price] both from Epson or the NEC NP-UM330[plb_1528333_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
