8 Reasons For

Canon Has Good Projector Reviews

Multimedia projectors built by Canon are some of the better multimedia projectors according to average reviews from experts and users.

Only Released Eight Months Ago

This data projector was only released eight months ago. Newer projectors like this one are likely to have more advanced features.

Supports Full HD

The Canon LX-MU800Z supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the LX-MU800Z do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the new multimedia projectors the projector brightnesss range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 8,000 ANSI lumens, the LX-MU800Z's projector brightness is one of the brightest amongst multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the LX-MU800Z.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The Canon LX-MU800Z has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's 11% more resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most common resolution.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution across all recently released multimedia projectors.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is the worst resolution amongst similar types of projector.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The LX-MU800Z supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by new multimedia projectors. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this Canon multimedia projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+).

This multimedia projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all newly released similar spec projectors.

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

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

The LX-MU800Z has one of the longer service life of lamps (20,000 hours) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Across all the data projectors that were released in the last year the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 6,900h.

10 Reasons Against

Recent Price Increase of £771.60

In the last couple of weeks the price of the LX-MU800Z has increased by £771.60.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Canon LX-MU800Z does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other latest similar spec projectors do have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Epson EB-L1200U[plb_3359736_price] is also worth considering.

Expensive

We think this Canon multimedia projector looks expensive compared to other data projectors that have been on the market for the last year. We checked 71 data projectors that have been on the market for the last year and they range in price from £180 to £18,857.

The LX-MU800Z is one of the more expensive to run multimedia projectors that were released in the last 12 months that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the LX-MU800Z is £330.
