6 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the X26, the 3M X26 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most commonly supported graphics resolution on comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of the 3M X26 of 3,200 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest amongst multimedia projectors of this type and age. The average projector brightness of 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X26 is 2,500 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 3,200 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The average maximum horizontal synchronization of projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 90kHz, and the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 32kHz to 110kHz. The 3M X26 has a very high maximum horizontal synchronization (106 kilohertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the X26.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The average width of multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the X26 is 330mm, and the widths range from 270mm to 380mm. The 3M X26 is one of the narrower 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X26 (only 306 millimeters) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.2 kilograms, the 3M X26 is quite light compared to most of the other 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago. The weights of projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 1.7kg to 4.7kg.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The 3M X26 does not support Full HD projection, unlike most of the other similar spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Optoma HD23 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the X26 do not support 3D image projection. The 3M X26 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The 3M X26 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

The 3M X26 has a fairly dim lamp power in economic mode (only 140 Watts) compared to most of the other 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X26. The lamp powers in economic mode of 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the X26 range from 140W to 190W.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level

The 3M X26 has one of the loudest noise levels (37 decibels) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The quietest noise level of projectors of a similar spec and age to the X26 is 29dB, the loudest is 37dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Canon LV-7297 (36.4dB).

Very Small Lamp Power

The smallest lamp power of data projectors of this type and age is 160W, the biggest is 3,000W, and the average lamp power is 470W. The 3M X26 has one of the smaller lamp power (only 200 Watts) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Across all the projectors of a comparable type and age to the X26 the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 4,000h to 6,000h. At only 4,000 hours, the 3M X26 has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the X26.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of data projectors of this type and age is 220h and the longest is 6,000h. With a lamp service life of only 3,000 hours, the 3M X26 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the X26.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The 3M X26 has a fairly low maximum vertical synchronization (only 0.12 kilohertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X26. Across all the data projectors that were released more than two years ago the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 74kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

The average noise level in economy mode of projectors of a similar age and type to the X26 is 29dB. When compared to other projectors of this spec and age, the noise level in economy mode of the 3M X26 of 30 decibels is one of the loudest.
