8 Reasons For

Acceptable Noise Level

One Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW reviewer who reviewed the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW concluded that it was quiet. Cnet.com.au said “And its operation is quiet” in their review of this projector.

Supports Full HD Projection

The HC7900DW supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the HC7900DW do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the EH501, or the HD25 (£799.00) both from Optoma or the Benq W7000+.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D image projection to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+, the Sony VPL-HW40ES, and the Epson PowerLite Pro G6050W is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many projectors of a comparable age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the HC7900DW is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by data projectors that have been available for more than two years. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the HC7900DW graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most projectors that came out more than two years ago have between one and three HDMI ports, including the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

At only 23 decibels, the HC7900DW has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. Projectors that were released more than two years ago have noise levels in economy mode of between 20dB and 40dB.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This multimedia projector received an expert rating of 60% from CNET.com.au. That puts this projector in the bottom 5% of all the projectors of a comparable age and spec.

A Bit Expensive

One customer who reviewed the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW mentioned that it was not cheap. Cnet.com.au gave the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW a rating of 3 stars and mentioned in their Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW review on CNET.com.au “More expensive than similarly performing projectors”.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type, the HC7900DW does not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Viewsonic Pro10100-SD, or the Optoma HD25 (£799.00) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The HC7900DW does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Elmo BOXi MP-350, the LG PW700 (£413.03), or the Optoma W305ST (£535.65) which is also higher rated.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors that came out around the same time as the HC7900DW is 2,900 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 1,500 ANSI lumen, the HC7900DW has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 1,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Acer K750 which has better reviews.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the VPL-HW40ES (1,700 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-HW40ES (£573.00) (1,700 ANSI lumens) both from Sony or the Optoma HD30 (£1,099.00) (1,600 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than two years range from 1,500h to 30,000h. The Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 3,000 hours) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The HC7900DW is a one VGA (D-Sub) port projector.

3 Other reasons to consider the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW

Running Costs Are OK

The average running cost of the HC7900DW is £122 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 102 similar spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when Mitsubishi Electric released the HC7900DW.

Average Noise Level

At 31 decibels, the HC7900DW has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the HC7900DW.

There are a number of other 31dB noise level data projectors currently available that you might want to consider including the Benq W700+ which has better reviews.
