10 Reasons For

Infocus Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

On average multimedia projectors produced by Infocus are rated 85%, which is in the top 29% of all projector brands that we have assessed.

Supports 3D

The Infocus IN8601 supports 3D. Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the IN8601 do not support 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Vivitek Qumi Q2 is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the IN8601 which do not support full HD, the Infocus IN8601 supports full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors which support full HD currently available including the Sony VPL-DW125 which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the IN8601, the Infocus IN8601 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130 (£1,581.46) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
