11 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Infocus projectors are rated 84 out of 100, which is in the top 32% of all data projector brands that we have analysed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Infocus IN8601 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this age and type do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD Projection

The Infocus IN8601 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-DW125.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Infocus IN8601 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the IN8601 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Ricoh PJ WX4130 is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Infocus IN8601 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Data projectors that were released around the same time as the IN8601 native projector resolutions range from XGA (1024x768) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).

1920 X 1080 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution

The biggest maximum analog resolution of the Infocus IN8601 is 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 8% more maximum analog resolution than the most frequently found maximum analog resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. The maximum analog resolution of all data projectors of a comparable type and age to the IN8601 ranges from 640 x 480 pixels to 1920 x 1200 pixels.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors of this type and age range from 24dB to 51dB. At only 30 decibels, the Infocus IN8601 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the VPL-SW536 (35dB), or the VPL-SX536 (28dB) both from Sony.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the IN8601, the Infocus IN8601 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Infocus IN8601 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age. The dimmest projector brightness of 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 500 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 16,000 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the VPLDW120 ($675.94) (2,600 ANSI lumens), the VPL-DX125 (2,600 ANSI lumens), or the VPLDX120 ($699.00) (2,600 ANSI lumens) all from Sony.
