7 Reasons For

Good Size

One Gigabyte BRIX Projector reviewer who purchased the product considered that it was compact. Ocaholic.ch.english mentioned in their review of the Gigabyte BRIX Projector “Extremely small and compact”.

Nice Design

One person who reviewed this projector reckoned that it was good looking. Last year Ocaholic.ch.english mentioned “Pretty powerful given its size”.

Good Technical Features

One customer who purchased this projector said that it had good features.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Gigabyte BRIX Projector supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the BRIX Projector do not support WiFi connectivity.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson EH-TW6600[plb_2495277_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The BRIX Projector has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to look at including the Optoma S316[plb_2280092_price].

Two Built-In Speakers

The BRIX Projector has more built-in speakers than most of the similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago. Most of the data projectors that were released more than two years ago only have one built-in speaker, however this projector has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The narrowest similar spec projector that came out more than two years ago is 100mm wide, the widest is 500mm, and the average width is 340mm. When compared to other data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the BRIX Projector that we have assessed the width of, the BRIX Projector's width of only 107.6 millimeters is one of the narrowest.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The BRIX Projector does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the BRIX Projector also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Epson Home Cinema 3000[plb_3060356_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the BRIX Projector range from 75 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens. The projector brightness of the BRIX Projector of only 75 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest amongst similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Home Cinema 3000[pl_3060356_price] (2,300 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the EH-TW6600[pl_2495277_price] (2,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Epson or the LG PH300[plb_2760526_price] (300 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of a similar age and spec to the BRIX Projector do not support Full HD projection. The BRIX Projector is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson Home Cinema 3000[plb_3060356_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only WVGA (854x480) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the BRIX Projector is WVGA (854x480). That's 60% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the BRIX Projector the worst resolution is VGA (640x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of only 1.5 Watts, the BRIX Projector has one of the lower RMS rated power amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The average RMS rated power of projectors of a comparable age and type to the BRIX Projector is 8W, and the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This data projector has a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Compact, lightweight, simple installation, great performance for the cost. Met my expectations. Just bought a stick of 8GB DD 3 SO-DIMM RAM and a 750GB 2.5" Notebook HDD to go in it and it works great

Small size. light weight. options for how to display the device
We have a number of these in our network. They are great low power desktops for non-power users. I would recommend for areas that access a terminal server, telnet type client, or just basic e-mail and
The fan seems to run most of the time when I'm working on it and it's fairly loud; about as loud as when a laptop fan kicks on high, or a little louder. Other than that, no complaints
The foxconn site advertises this as noiseless, which is absolutely ridiculous. This thing 8 feet away is louder than my desktop 2 feet away. I'm running openelec 3.2.2 on it and the fan never slows do
Extremely loud, runs hot, screws are impossible to remove, little to no performance gain over previous model. Useless in HTPC or quiet office spaces

They are not super powerful gaming machines. But that's not what we purchased them for
