Across all projectors of a comparable age and type to the Qumi Q4 the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Across all the comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the Qumi Q4 the lamp service lives range from 2,000h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

Similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year have uniformities of between 80% and 130%, and the average uniformity is 88%. When compared to other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the Qumi Q4, the Qumi Q4's uniformity of 100 percent is one of the biggest.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Qumi Q4 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the Qumi Q4.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might also want to consider including the Optoma W310 or the Viewsonic PJD5555 ($342.99).

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Qumi Q4 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the Qumi Q4.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD5555 ($342.99) or the Optoma W310 are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year do not support Full HD projection. The Qumi Q4 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at include the Infocus IN119HD ($444.99) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the Qumi Q4 range from 500 ANSI lumens to 8,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens.
