The LV-8227A has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq SH960[plb_1385329_price], the Optoma TW695[plb_2053835_price], and the Epson EB-425W[plb_1844228_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The LV-8227A supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by similar spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the LV-8227A. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this projector. This data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This multimedia projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the LV-8227A.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution across similar types of multimedia projector.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support 3D. The LV-8227A is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D to this data projector and we think the NP-M311W[pl_1525270_price], or the NP-V311X[pl_1617184_price] both from NEC or the Infocus IN3124[plb_1475112_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the LV-8227A do not support full HD. The Canon LV-8227A is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Benq SH960[plb_1385329_price], the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the Canon LV-8227A does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the EB-430 LW[pl_1837070_price], the EB-425W[pl_1844228_price], or the BrightLink 436Wi[pl_1875520_price] all from Epson which is also higher rated.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors that were launched around the same time as the LV-8227A is 100 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 8,000 ANSI lumens. The LV-8227A has a quite dim projector brightness (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the VS210[pl_3060185_price] (2,600 ANSI lumens), the 475Wi[pl_1778250_price] (2,600 ANSI lumens), or the BrightLink 475WI[pl_2226278_price] (2,600 ANSI lumens) all from Epson which is also higher rated.
