The Monroe LC6131 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other data projectors that are older than a year.

It is worth also looking at different data projectors with a built-in speaker including the Optoma DS551[plb_2001432_price], the NEC NP610[plb_2622890_price], or the Benq MW811[plb_1992406_price].

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that are older than a year, the Monroe LC6131 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the DS551[pl_2001432_price], or the X315[pl_2326573_price] both from Optoma or the Barco RLM-W12[plb_2418178_price] are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year do not support Full HD projection, including the Monroe LC6131.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors with a Full HD projection including the Barco RLM-W12[plb_2418178_price], the NEC NP-PX750[plb_2057345_price], or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8345[plb_2231991_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago, the Philips Monroe LC6131 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Different projectors with a WiFi connectivity that you might want to also look at include the Gigabyte BRIX Projector[plb_2116585_price], the Sony VPL-EW226[plb_1598405_price], or the DELL M900HD[plb_2271939_price].

The projector brightnesses of projectors that came out more than a year ago range from 12 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens. The Monroe LC6131 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 1,000 ANSI lumen) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

If you are looking for a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to also look at the DLA-X900RBE[pl_2254744_price] (1300 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the DLA-X700RBE[pl_2254743_price] (1300 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from JVC or the Vivitek D910HD[plb_2204488_price] (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

The Philips Monroe LC6131 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). The worst resolution of all multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the Monroe LC6131 is nHD (640x360) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

We compared all the other projectors that have a resolution of SVGA (800x600) to this data projector and we think a higher Kagoo Rating™ projector such as the P1173[pl_2123413_price], and the X1173[pl_2123448_price] both from Acer or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 500[plb_2231990_price] are also worth considering.

If the resolution of this projector is too low for you then you might want to also look at the Aiptek MobileCinema Q20[plb_2407436_price] (540p (960x540 and higher rated) and higher rated), the Epson V11H445320[plb_2096675_price] (540p (960x540 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the NEC NP-PX800[plb_2054276_price] (XGA (1024x768 and higher rated) and higher rated).
