8 Reasons For

Acceptable Noise Level

One Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW reviewer who reviewed the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW concluded that it was quiet. Cnet.com.au said “And its operation is quiet” in their review of this projector.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Benq W7000+, the Optoma EH501 ($2,541.53), or the Panasonic PT-AE8000U ($1,699.00) which has better reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago, the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW supports 3D image projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub ($2,995.00), or the PowerLite Pro G6550WU both from Epson or the Benq W7000+.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on projectors that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the HC7900DW is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This Mitsubishi Electric projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). Across all multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the HC7900DW the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The HC7900DW is a two HDMI port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

Data projectors of a similar age and spec to the HC7900DW have noise levels in economy mode of between 20dB and 40dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB. At only 23 decibels, the HC7900DW has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the HC7900DW.

6 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This projector received an expert rating of 60% from CNET.com.au. Experts aren't convinced by this data projector.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the HC7900DW, the HC7900DW does not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the NEC NP-M352 ($1,069.00), or the Epson Home Cinema 3020+ ($999.00).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years, the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Elmo BOXi MP-350, the Vivitek Qumi Q7, or the Benq GP20 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 2,900 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 1,500 ANSI lumen, the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst projectors of this age.

We compared all the other 1,500 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer K750 is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the VPL-HW40ES (1,700 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-VW1100ES ($24,166.99) (2,000 ANSI lumens) both from Sony or the Optoma HD30 (1,600 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of projectors that were released around the same time as the HC7900DW is 1,500h and the longest is 30,000h. With a lamp service life of only 3,000 hours, the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the HC7900DW.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most projectors that have been around for more than two years have between 1 and 11 VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the HC7900DW which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

2 Other reasons to consider the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when Mitsubishi Electric released the HC7900DW.

Average Noise Level

The HC7900DW has a fairly average noise level (31 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We compared this data projector to all the other 31dB noise level projectors and we think the Benq W700+ which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Although its dark-room picture quality rivals projectors near its price, the Mitsubishi HC7900DW's low light output contributes to making it a worse value...

The Mitsubishi H 7900DW projector can produce very good pictures in a dark room
Exhibits deepenough black levels and accurate color in bright areas
Has lots of viable videoprocessing options
And its operation is quiet
Exhibits deep-enough black levels and accurate color in bright areas
More expensive than similarly performing projectors
Relatively dim
Black and neardark areas are slightly green
Must buy separate emitter for 3D
No 3D glasses included
