11 Reasons For

Good Brand

Projectors produced by Infocus generally have good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Infocus MS521 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the MS521 also support 3D image projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Benq W1500 which has a better Rating.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Infocus MS521 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider include a cheaper data projector such as the Acer U5310 or you might consider a higher Rating data projector such as the Benq W1500.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MS521 have projector brightness of between 300 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens. At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Infocus MS521 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the MS521.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on comparable spec projectors that are more than two years old.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of WXGA (1280x800) currently available that you might want to look at including the Acer U5310 which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a higher resolution then you might want to consider the Benq W1500 (1080p (1920x1080)) which is also higher rated.

Two Built-In Speakers

The Infocus MS521 has more built-in speakers than most of the projectors that came out around the same time as the MS521. This data projector is a two built-in speaker projector compared to most of the projectors that are more than two years old which only have one built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Infocus MS521 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

Across all the similar spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 7.4W. When compared to other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are older than two years, the Infocus MS521's RMS rated power of 20 Watts is one of the highest.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The Infocus MS521 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode (8,000 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are more than two years old. Across all the comparable spec projectors that are more than two years old the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 4,000h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Offset

At 120 percent, the Infocus MS521 has a quite big offset compared to most of the other projectors that are more than two years old. Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MS521 have offsets of between 20% and 130%, and the average offset is 100%.

Chart Edit

1080i Video Mode

The Infocus MS521 supports a 1080i video mode which is better than most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it. Most projectors that are older than two years support a 480p video mode. This data projector also support 1080p, 480i, 576i and 576p and 720p video modes.

A 1080i video mode is in fact the best supported supported video mode across all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Across similar types of multimedia projector the worst supported supported video mode is 480p.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Infocus MS521 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the MS521 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq W1500.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the MS521 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Infocus MS521 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Benq W1500 is also worth considering.

Very Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that are older than two years the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 91kHz to 100kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 99kHz. At only 91.4 kilohertz, the Infocus MS521 has a quite low maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the MS521.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MS521 have weights of between 360g and 19kg. The Infocus MS521 is fairly heavy (5 kilograms) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the MS521.

4 Other reasons to consider the Infocus MS521

OK Running Costs

The MS521 has an average 1 year running cost of £106 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 27 multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age.

Recent Price Drop of £0.01

In the last 24 days the price of the MS521 has dropped by £0.01.

Over Two Years Old

Infocus released the MS521 over two years ago.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 33 decibels, the Infocus MS521 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the MS521.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 33dB noise level data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W1500.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Acer U5310 (34dB and cheaper).
