Canon Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked the reviews from experts and owners of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average Canon data projectors have good reviews from experts and users.

Supports Full HD

The LX-MU500 supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the LX-MU500 also support full HD.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Unlike most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago which do not have a built-in speaker(s), the LX-MU500 has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the LX-MU500 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution. Projectors of a similar spec and age to the LX-MU500 projector native resolutions range from nHD (640x360) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the LX-MU500 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution across all projectors that were launched more than a year ago.

The worst supported resolution across comparable types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

The LX-MU500 has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s (only 2,500 hours) amongst projectors of this age. Across all the 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than a year the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 2,500h to 3,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

The smallest uniformity of data projectors that are a similar age to the LX-MU500 is 70% and the biggest is 95%. With a uniformity of only 75 percent, the LX-MU500 has a fairly small uniformity compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the LX-MU500.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

The shortest service life of lamp of multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the LX-MU500 is 2,000h, the longest is 2,300h, and the average service life of lamp is 2,100h. With a service life of lamp of only 2,000 hours, the LX-MU500 has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the LX-MU500.
