2 Reasons For

UXGA (1600 X 1200) Native Projector Resolution

The SM-820I has a maximum resolution of UXGA (1600 x 1200). That's 88% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). The worst resolution of all similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago is nHD (640x360) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

If the resolution of this data projector is not high enough for you then you might want to also look at the Infocus IN8601 (1080p (1920x1080 and higher rated) and higher rated), the DELL 7700 ($4,409.71) (1080p (1920x1080 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Optoma HD23 (1080p (1920x1080 and higher rated) and higher rated).

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The SM-820I does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth considering different projectors with a built-in speaker including the iPowerUp SGT1001W, or the Infocus SP8600HD3D.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years, the Smart Media SM-820I does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in different multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection including the Epson EH-TW9100, the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW, or the Benq MX514P.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the SM-820I does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson EH-TW9100, the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW, or the Vivitek D517 are also worth considering.

2 Other reasons to consider the Smart Media SM-820I

Over Two Years Old

This projector was released over two years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,600 ANSI lumens, the SM-820I has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are more than two years old.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to also look at the PT-LZ370U ($2,279.95) (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the PT-RZ470 ($3,659.99) (3500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Panasonic or the Optoma HD25 (3200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
