13 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

On average, based on two expert reviews from sites including PC Mag and itproportal.com the average expert rating of this 2000:1 contrast ratio projector is 70 out of 100.

Acceptable Noise Level

One Canon LV-8320 owner who purchased the product thought it was quiet. Itproportal.com said in their review of this projector “Relatively long lamp life (at least in Quiet mode) for a non-LED projector” .

Good Product Quality

One person who reviewed it concluded that it was good quality. Itproportal.com wrote in their review of this projector “Good video quality” and gave it a score of 70 out of 100.

Robust

One Canon LV-8320 reviewer who bought it thought it was well made. Itproportal.com mentioned “Solid for presentations” in their Canon LV-8320 review.

Canon Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all Canon projectors and also specifically for Canon 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors and found that in both cases Canon had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LV-8320 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of this type and age also have a built-in speaker.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to consider include the Benq SP870 ($1,599.00), the Canon LV-7390, or the Epson EB-455Wi which has better reviews.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The LV-8320 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). This projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the LV-8320.

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

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the LV-8320 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all comparable spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago the resolution ranges from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 34 decibels, the Canon LV-8320 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The average noise level of projectors of a similar age and type to the LV-8320 is 36dB.

We compared this data projector to all the other 34dB noise level projectors and we think the Hitachi CP-DH300, and the Optoma EX855 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very High RMS Rated Power

At 19 Watts, the LV-8320 has a very high RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the LV-8320. 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the LV-8320 have RMS rated power of between 1W and 19W, and the average RMS rated power is 7W.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the LV-8320 is 200h and the longest is 30,000h. With a lamp service life of 5,000 hours, the Canon LV-8320 has one of the longer lamp service lives amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 29 decibels, the LV-8320 has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode amongst projectors of this age. The average noise level in economy mode of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the LV-8320 is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the LV-8320 range from 2,500h to 10,000h. At 5,000 hours, the LV-8320 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the LV-8320.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The LV-8320 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector ($499.00), the NEC NP-PA600X ($583.51), or the Ricoh PJ X6180N which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection. The LV-8320 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to look at include the U300X, the U260W, or the U310W all from NEC which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The LV-8320 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W ($649.99), the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro, or the Casio XJ-A256 is also worth considering.

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the LV-8320 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The LV-8320 is a one audio in port multimedia projector. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

Projectors of a similar spec and age to the LV-8320 have matrix sizes of between 0.45" and 55", and the average matrix size is 1.7". At only 0.59 inches, the LV-8320 has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the LV-8320.

2 Other reasons to consider the Canon LV-8320

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Canon released the LV-8320.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the LV-8320 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the CP-DH300, or the CP-EW300 ($536.76) both from Hitachi or the NEC U300X which has better reviews.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the WUX-400 (4,000 ANSI lumens), or the WUX400ST ($6,879.73) (4,000 ANSI lumens) both from Canon or the Epson D6155W (3,500 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
