Video

Supports Full HD

The PRO8530HDL supports full HD, unlike most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months which do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic Pro8800wul (£1,478.44) is also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PRO8530HDL has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Panasonic PT-VW535NAJ (£1,307.98), the Benq SX920 (£1,280.40), and the Viewsonic PRO8510L (£1,230.63) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 33 decibels, the PRO8530HDL has one of the quieter noise levels amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The quietest noise level of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to this projector is 30dB and the loudest is 39dB.

There are a number of alternative 33dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available that you might also want to consider including the Viewsonic Pro8800wul (£1,478.44) which has better reviews; or the Viewsonic PRO8510L (£1,230.63) which is cheaper.
