13 Reasons For

Infocus Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Infocus is one of the superior projector manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all data projectors.

Nice Design

One Infocus IN5144a owner who reviewed the product thought it was ugly. Whathifi.com said “That's not to say it's unattractive – it just appears to mean business, regardless of your room's aesthetics” in their Infocus IN5144a review.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the IN5144a, the IN5144a has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at including the EB-426Wi[pl_1946842_price], or the EB-430 LW[pl_1837070_price] both from Epson or the Benq SH960[plb_1385329_price] which has better reviews.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the IN5144a is 100 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 8,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,500 ANSI lumens, the Infocus IN5144a has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst projectors of this age.

We compared this data projector to all the other 5,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the Benq SH960[plb_1385329_price], and the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the IN5144a only have one built-in speaker, however the IN5144a has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

Projectors of a comparable age and spec to the IN5144a have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 91kHz and 110kHz. At 106 kilohertz, the IN5144a has a very high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite High Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The IN5144a has a fairly high maximum vertical synchronization (120 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the IN5144a. The maximum vertical synchronization of multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the IN5144a range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 97kHz.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Infocus IN5144a has more HDMI ports than most of the data projectors that were launched more than two years ago. This data projector is a two HDMI port data projector compared to most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the IN5144a which only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

The IN5144a is a two audio in port multimedia projector. Most of the other data projectors of this type and age have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the Infocus IN5144a has one of the higher RMS rated power amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the IN5144a the RMS rated power range from 0.5W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Brightness in Economy Mode

When compared to other projectors of this type and age that we have assessed the brightness in economy mode of, the IN5144a's brightness in economy mode of 4,400 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. The average brightness in economy mode of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 2,400 ANSI lumens, and the brightness in economy mode range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 4,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Lamp Power

At 330 Watts, the IN5144a has a fairly big lamp power compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the IN5144a. Multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the IN5144a have lamp power of between 140W and 400W.

11 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This projector received a rating of 60 out of 100 from projector expert review website whathifi.com. This means that projector experts really don't rate this 3000:1 contrast ratio data projector very highly.

Unacceptable Noise Level

A few Infocus IN5144a reviewers said in their reviews that it was not noisy. Whathifi.com mentioned “Noisy picture”.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The IN5144a does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NP-M311W[pl_1525270_price], or the NP-V311[pl_1617184_price] both from NEC or the Infocus IN3124[plb_1475112_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the IN5144a do not support Full HD projection. The IN5144a is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Benq SH960[plb_1385329_price], the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price], or the Vivitek D8300[plb_1986896_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of this age and type do not support WiFi connectivity. The IN5144a is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the EB-430 LW[pl_1837070_price], or the EB-1400[pl_1850713_price] both from Epson or the NEC NP-UM330[plb_1528333_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Small Offset

At only 10 percent, the IN5144a has a fairly small offset compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. The average offset of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the IN5144a is 88%, and the offsets range from 9.5% to 130%.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The IN5144a has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode (only 3,000 hours) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the IN5144a is 230h and the longest is 20,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the IN5144a is 1,500h and the longest is 30,000h. The Infocus IN5144a has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 2,500 hours) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

The IN5144a has one of the lower numbers of colours (only 1.07 million) amongst projectors of this age. The numbers of colours of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years range from 1M to 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 210M.
