Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Infocus IN8606HD has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Asus B1MR (£546.73), and the Benq GP3 (£499.29) both of which have better reviews; or the Acer H6510 which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesses of projectors of a comparable age and spec to this projector range from 300 ANSI lumens to 20,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. The IN8606HD has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-LB280E (£414.88) (2,800 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the Epson EB-W28 (£434.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Supports Full HD

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think the Asus B1MR (£546.73) which has better reviews; or the H6510, and the H6520 both from Acer and both of which are cheaper are also worth considering.
