9 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

This data projector received an expert rating of 70% from PC Mag.

Infocus Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors produced by Infocus have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just projectors) and found that Infocus also has good reviews across its entire range.

Good Size

One Infocus IN1142 owner said in their reviews that this projector was lightweight. Pcmag.com mentioned in their review of this projector on expert website PC Mag two years ago “A 700-lumen rating in a small, lightweight projector.” and gave this projector a score of 70 out of 100.

Good Connectivity

One person concluded that this projector was good in terms of HDMI connections. Expert review site Pcmag.com wrote “The only connection choice is an HDMI port” in their review and gave the product a score of 70 out of 100.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the IN1142 which do not have a built-in speaker, the Infocus IN1142 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the W750[pl_1561747_price], and the GP20[pl_2231335_price] both from Benq or the Viewsonic PJD6350[plb_2830965_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very Long Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the IN1142 is 7,900h. With a lamp service life of 30,000 hours, the Infocus IN1142 has a very long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Projectors that have been around for a similar time to the IN1142 have weights of between 2.7g and 26kg, and the average weight is 6.2kg. At only 800 grams, the Infocus IN1142 is quite light compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Narrow

At only 170 millimeters, the Infocus IN1142 is very narrow compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec. The narrowest projector that has been on the market for more than two years is 130mm wide and the widest is 750mm.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other projectors of this type and age support 3D image projection, however the Infocus IN1142 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the W750[pl_1561747_price], or the GP20[pl_2231335_price] both from Benq or the Viewsonic PJD6350[plb_2830965_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most data projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support Full HD projection. The Infocus IN1142 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Optoma DH1008[plb_2529465_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

When compared to other similar spec data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the IN1142 that we have assessed, the Infocus IN1142's projector brightness of only 700 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest. The projector brightness of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the IN1142 range from 300 ANSI lumens to 9,200 ANSI lumens.

We compared all the other 700 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Optoma S313[plb_2502195_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper) or the Optoma S311[plb_2591380_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Infocus IN1142 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the IN1142 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider include the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] which is also higher rated.

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

Across all the data projectors of a similar age and type to the IN1142 the RMS rated power range from 1W to 30W. When compared to other data projectors of this age and spec, the Infocus IN1142's RMS rated power of only 1 Watt is one of the lowest.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

Projectors that were launched around the same time as the IN1142 have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 85kHz and 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 95kHz. At only 91.1 kilohertz, the Infocus IN1142 has a quite low maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The Infocus IN1142 is a one USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.

3 Other reasons to consider the Infocus IN1142

Released Over Two Years Ago

This multimedia projector has been on the market for over two years.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Infocus IN1142 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 51% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 34 decibels, the Infocus IN1142 has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the IN1142.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 34dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W750[plb_1561747_price].

If you are not bothered about having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Vivitek Qumi Q2L[plb_1899800_price] (32dB and cheaper); or the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] (36dB and higher rated).
