Good 3D Picture Quality

Four customers who purchased this projector concluded that it had a good 3D picture quality. Tony Cutlan gave the product an excellent review score and he mentioned on Amazon “No evidence of the dreaded "rainbow" artifacts, in fact the picture in 2D or 3D seemed flawless even from just ten feet away from the screen”.

Expert website Whathifi.com said in their review of this projector “With Full HD and 3D credentials”.

Unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the IN8606HD which do not support 3D image projection, the IN8606HD supports 3D image projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the NEC M362[plb_2268470_price], the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price], and the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Infocus IN8606HD has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the IN8606HD.

Other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN1146[plb_2100767_price], the Epson EB-955W[plb_2017457_price], or the Panasonic PT-TW340E[plb_3140214_price].

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the IN8606HD is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years range from 28dB to 49dB. The IN8606HD has a quite quiet noise level (only 33 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 33dB noise level projectors to this data projector and we think the Acer K132[plb_1564923_price] which is cheaper; or the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price], and the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Fairly Big Matrix Size

The smallest matrix size of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the IN8606HD is 0.45" and the biggest is 0.96". The IN8606HD has one of the bigger matrix sizes (0.65 inches) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Big Uniformity

The smallest uniformity of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the IN8606HD is 0.9% and the biggest is 100%. When compared to other projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed, the IN8606HD's uniformity of 95 percent is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Offset

With an offset of 130 percent, the IN8606HD has one of the bigger offsets amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The smallest offset of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the IN8606HD is 8% and the biggest is 140%.

Chart Edit

Quite High Number of Colours

With a number of colours of 1,070 million, the Infocus IN8606HD has a quite high number of colours compared to most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago. Data projectors of a comparable age and type to the IN8606HD have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Across all the projectors of this age and type the widths range from 100mm to 970mm, and the average width is 320mm. With a width of only 285 millimeters, the IN8606HD is quite narrow compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Unacceptable Noise Level

One Infocus IN8606HD owner who reviewed this projector reckoned that it was not quiet. Tony Cutlan wrote in his review of the Infocus IN8606HD two years ago “Once fired up it makes barely a whisper (use economy mode” but he gave this projector a rating of 5 stars.

Inferior Remote Control

A few Infocus IN8606HD owners who bought it reckoned that it did not have a good remote control. Whathifi.com mentioned in their review “Flimsy remote” yet they still gave this projector a score of 4 stars. Whathifi.com also mentioned “If you lose the credit-card size remote, you can't change any settings, including volume”.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that were released around the same time as the IN8606HD do not support WiFi connectivity. The Infocus IN8606HD is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson EB-X18[plb_2017449_price], or the Acer P1510[plb_2284610_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the IN8606HD has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the IN8606HD. Projectors of this age and spec have projector brightness of between 300 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens.

If you are looking for a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the PT-TW250[pl_2404089_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens), or the PT-TW340E[pl_3140214_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic or the Epson EB-W28[plb_2441061_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

When compared to other data projectors that have been around for more than two years that we have assessed, the IN8606HD's maximum horizontal synchronization of only 90 kilohertz is one of the lowest. Across all the similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the IN8606HD the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 90kHz to 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 99kHz.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most projectors of this age and spec have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the IN8606HD which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.
