9 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors of this age and type the Canon 8227A supports Full HD projection.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which support Full HD projection including a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the CP-WU8460, or the CP-WX8255A both from Hitachi or the Mitsubishi Electric UD740U.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the 8227A, the Canon 8227A has a built-in speaker.

Different multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker that you might want to also look at include a higher Kagoo Rating™ multimedia projector such as the Optoma DS317, the Hitachi CP-DW25WN, or the Epson EB-X12.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Canon 8227A supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 8227A. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution across all comparable spec data projectors that are older than two years.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst similar types of data projector.

Projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth considering include the UM330 (720 x 480, 1280 x 960, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1152 x 864 (XGA+ and higher rated), 1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated), 1280 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated), 1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated), 1360 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+ and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+ and higher rated), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVG and higher rated), the VE281 (720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated), or the M271 (720 x 480,720 x 576,832 x 624,1280 x 960,1600 x 900,1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated),1152 x 864 (XGA+ and higher rated),1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated),1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated),1280 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated),1366 х 768,1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated),1440 x 900 (WXGA+ and higher rated),1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated),1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+ and higher rated),1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated),640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated),800 x 600,1152 x 870,1280 x and higher rated) all from NEC.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many comparable spec projectors that are more than two years old.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of WXGA (1280x800) including a higher Kagoo Rating™ projector such as the EB-1410, the EB-1400WI, or the EB-1400 all from Epson.

If the resolution of this projector is too low for you then you might want to consider the SP840 (1080p (1920x1080 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the SH960 ($4,513.00) (1080p (1920x1080 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Benq or the Infocus IN3128 (1080p (1920x1080 and higher rated) and higher rated).

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the projectors of this type and age do not support 3D image projection, including the Canon 8227A.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the DW312, or the TW695 both from Optoma or the Mitsubishi Electric UD740U are also worth considering.

Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Canon 8227A has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are older than two years. The dimmest projector brightness of projectors of this age and spec is 1,300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

If this 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the 475Wi ($2,102.34) (2600 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the PowerLite S12+ (2600 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Epson or the Optoma DS317 (2600 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Small RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of the Canon 8227A of only 1 Watt is one of the smallest amongst similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. The average RMS rated power of 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are more than two years old is 11W.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Canon 8227A is a one VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other data projectors that are more than two years old have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

2 Other reasons to consider the Canon 8227A

Over Two Years Old

Canon released the 8227A over two years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 36.4 decibels, the Canon 8227A has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are more than two years old.

It is worth considering alternative 36.4dB noise level multimedia projectors including a higher rated multimedia projector such as the Canon LV-8227A.
