5 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the 3M X26 has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This multimedia projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most frequently supported supported graphics resolutions on data projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness

When compared to other multimedia projectors of this age and type, the projector brightness of the 3M X26 of 3,200 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. The average projector brightness of 500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the X26 is 2,500 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

With a horizontal synchronization (max) of 106 kilohertz, the 3M X26 has a very high horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the X26. Across all the comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago the horizontal synchronization (max)s range from 32kHz to 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the projectors of a similar age and spec to the X26 the weights range from 1.7kg to 4.7kg, and the average weight is 3.1kg. At only 2.2 kilograms, the 3M X26 is quite light compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X26.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The 3M X26 does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the X26 also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the Optoma HD23[plb_1830006_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the X26, the 3M X26 does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The 3M X26 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

Across all the projectors of a comparable age and spec to the X26 the lamp power (economic mode)s range from 140W to 190W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 170W. The 3M X26 has a quite dim lamp power (economic mode) (only 140 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the X26.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level

Across all the data projectors that have been available for more than two years the noise levels range from 29dB to 37dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. When compared to other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X26, the 3M X26's noise level of 37 decibels is one of the loudest.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

At only 200 Watts, the 3M X26 has a fairly small bulb power compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the X26. The smallest bulb power of data projectors of this type and age is 160W, the biggest is 3,000W, and the average bulb power is 470W.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 4,000 hours, the 3M X26 has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the X26. The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of multimedia projectors of this age and type range from 4,000h to 6,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

Similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X26 have service life of lamps of between 220h and 6,000h. With a service life of lamp of only 3,000 hours, the 3M X26 has a quite short service life of lamp compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the X26.

Chart Edit

Very Low Vertical Synchronization (max)

The average vertical synchronization (max) of data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the X26 is 70kHz. At only 0.12 kilohertz, the 3M X26 has a quite low vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

With a noise level (economic mode) of 30 decibels, the 3M X26's noise level (economic mode) is one of the loudest amongst 500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the X26. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the X26 the noise level (economic mode)s range from 28dB to 30dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB.
