1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The LV-8320 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by data projectors of a comparable age and type to the LV-8320. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution across all 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the LV-8320.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution amongst similar types of projector.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The LV-8320 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). Projectors of a similar spec and age to the LV-8320 projector native resolutions range from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

We compared this projector to all the other 34dB noise level projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Hitachi CP-DH300[plb_2149864_price], and the Optoma EX855[plb_1715998_price] is also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One customer said in their reviews that the Canon LV-8320 was not good value for money. Itproportal.com mentioned “A tad pricey” in their Canon LV-8320 review.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other data projectors of this spec and age, the LV-8320 does not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price], the Hitachi CP-CX250[plb_1740847_price], or the Panasonic PT-DZ680ULK[plb_2943449_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

The Canon LV-8320 does not support 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the LV-8320 also do not support 3D.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support 3D including the U300X[pl_1530119_price], the U260W[pl_1531484_price], or the U310W[pl_1531485_price] all from NEC which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the LV-8320 do not support wi-Fi. The LV-8320 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price], or the Casio XJ-A256[plb_1787918_price] which is also higher rated.

Only One Audio (L,R) in

Most comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the LV-8320 have between one and two audio (L,R) ins, including the LV-8320 which has one audio (L,R) in.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

The smallest matrix size of data projectors of a similar spec and age to the LV-8320 is 0.45" and the biggest is 0.8". The Canon LV-8320 has one of the smaller matrix sizes (only 0.59 inches) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

3 Other reasons to consider the Canon LV-8320

Running Costs Are OK

The average running cost of the LV-8320 is £107 over 1 year based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 87 projectors of this spec and age.

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this multimedia projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

The LV-8320 has a relatively average projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the LV-8320.

There are a number of alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the CP-DH300[pl_2149864_price], or the CP-EW300[pl_1940042_price] both from Hitachi or the Casio XJ-A251[plb_1997772_price].

If this 2000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Ricoh PJ WX2240 VP[plb_3258303_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the Epson D6155W[plb_3060325_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Canon WUX-400[plb_2476895_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
