8 Reasons For

Good Picture Quality

Three Canon 7297M reviewers said in their reviews that this projector had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

A few Canon 7297M owners mentioned in their reviews that the Canon 7297M was good quality. Expert review site Pcmag.com wrote “Is otherwise very similar, providing a basic feature set, adequate data and fairly good video image quality, in a portable data projector” in their review of the Canon 7297M yet they gave it a rating of 60 out of 100. Pcmag.com also mentioned “The Canon LV-7297M provides solid image quality for a moderately priced XGA projector with a basic feature set”. Pc Mag wrote in their review of the Canon 7297M “Solid (if unspectacular) image quality”.

Robust

Some customers who bought this projector reckoned that it was well made.

Good Technical Features

One Canon 7297M reviewer who purchased the product considered that it had good features.

Canon Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Canon data projectors have an average rating of 79%, which is in the top 48% of all data projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Supports Full HD

The Canon 7297M supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the 7297M do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support full HD currently available including the Canon LV-8227M[plb_1447355_price], or the Hitachi CP-AW2503[plb_2415188_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Canon 7297M has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Canon LV-8227M[plb_1447355_price], and the 3M X26[plb_1515234_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Canon 7297M is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) (which is also supported by this Canon projector). This projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all projectors of a similar age and spec to the 7297M.

Amongst similar types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Average Noise Level

The Canon 7297M has a pretty standard noise level (36.4 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the 7297M.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,600 ANSI lumens, the Canon 7297M has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the 7297M.

We compared this projector to all the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon LV-7297[plb_1457671_price] is also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the 3M X21[plb_1522151_price] (2,700 ANSI lumens), the Hitachi CP-AW2503[plb_2415188_price] (2,700 ANSI lumens), or the Canon LV-7392[plb_1519709_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
