7 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This multimedia projector received a rating of 60% from projector expert review site CNET.com.au. If all the multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years are ranked by average expert review score then this Mitsubishi Electric projector is in the bottom 2%.

A Bit Expensive

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the HC7900DW do not support wi-Fi. The Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EB-Z9900W, the Elmo BOXi MP-350, or the LG PW700 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 1,500 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the Acer K750 which has better reviews.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the VPL-HW40ES (£1,550.00) (1,700 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-HW40ES (£1,550.00) (1,700 ANSI lumens) both from Sony or the Optoma HD30 (1,600 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
