5 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The 3M X26 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the X26 also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness

When compared to other similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the X26 that we have assessed, the projector brightness of the 3M X26 of 3,200 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. The dimmest projector brightness of 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X26 is 1,500 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 3,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,500 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

The 3M X26 has one of the higher horizontal synchronization (max)s (106 kilohertz) amongst projectors of this age. The average horizontal synchronization (max) of data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the X26 is 90kHz, and the horizontal synchronization (max)s range from 32kHz to 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X26 the weights range from 1.7kg to 4.7kg. With a weight of only 2.2 kilograms, the 3M X26 is one of the lighter projectors of a similar type and age to the X26 amongst 500:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the X26 do not support full HD. The 3M X26 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma HD23[plb_1830006_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the X26, the 3M X26 does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X26, the 3M X26 does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

With a lamp power (economic mode) of only 140 Watts, the 3M X26 has one of the dimmer lamp power (economic mode)s amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The lamp power (economic mode)s of projectors that are a comparable age to the X26 range from 140W to 190W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 170W.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level

When compared to other 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the noise level of the 3M X26 of 37 decibels is one of the loudest. The noise levels of 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 29dB to 37dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

With a bulb power of only 200 Watts, the 3M X26 has one of the smaller bulb powers amongst 500:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X26 have bulb powers of between 160W and 3,000W, and the average bulb power is 470W.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the X26 is 4,000h and the longest is 6,000h. At only 4,000 hours, the 3M X26 has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the X26.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

The 3M X26 has one of the shorter service life of lamps (only 3,000 hours) amongst 500:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of a similar spec and age to the X26 the service life of lamps range from 220h to 6,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Vertical Synchronization (max)

At only 0.12 kilohertz, the 3M X26 has a quite low vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the X26. The average vertical synchronization (max) of similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X26 is 67kHz, and the vertical synchronization (max)s range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

500:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the X26 have noise level (economic mode)s of between 28dB and 30dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB. With a noise level (economic mode) of 30 decibels, the 3M X26 has a very loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.
