Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Infocus IN8601 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the IN8601.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Vivitek D795WT (£887.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Vivitek D791ST (£921.60).

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The resolution of all 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the IN8601 ranges from XGA (1024x768) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Infocus IN8601 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss amongst 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago is 4,100 ANSI lumens.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Vivitek D795WT (£887.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

In addition, this Infocus projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago the resolution ranges from 640 x 400 (worst) to 4096 x 2160 (best).
