The best resolution of all 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the IN126 is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Inferior Sound Quality

Pc Mag wrote in their review of this projector four years ago “Poor audio quality” but even so they gave it a score of 70 out of 100.

Poor 3D Picture Quality

One person who purchased the product concluded that it did not have a good 3D picture quality. Pc Mag mentioned “Claimed 3D feature is extremely limited” yet they still gave this projector a score of 70 out of 100.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the IN126, the Infocus IN126 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD6683WS is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than two years, the Infocus IN126 does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Optoma EX400.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Infocus IN126

Released Over Three Years Ago

This Infocus projector has been on the market for over three years.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

The Infocus IN126 has a fairly average noise level (32 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

We compared this data projector to all the other 32dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think the PJD6235, and the PJD6245 both from Viewsonic which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Viewsonic PJD6543W (32dB).
