4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the X66, the 3M X66 has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 832 x 624|1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that came out around the same time as the X66 is 2,000 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 3,000 ANSI lumens. When compared to other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago, the 3M X66's projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of data projectors of this spec and age is 3.5W. When compared to other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the X66 that we have assessed, the 3M X66's RMS rated power of 6 Watts is one of the highest.

5 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The 3M X66 does not support full HD. Most of the other 400:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The 3M X66 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 400:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 600h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,500h. With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 3,000 hours, the 3M X66 has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the X66.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

The 3M X66 is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity projector. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the X66 have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.
