10 Reasons For

Infocus Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

On average data projectors from Infocus are rated 85 out of 100, which is in the top 32% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years which do not support 3D image projection, the Infocus IN8601 supports 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD Projection

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Infocus IN8601 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the IN8601.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price], the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price], or the Sony VPL-DX140[plb_1437607_price].
