5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Canon LV-8320 does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors of this type and age also do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector ($499.00), the Hitachi CP-DH300, or the Ricoh PJ X6180N which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Other projectors which also support 3D that you might want to consider include the U300X, the U260W, or the U310W all from NEC which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the LV-8320, the LV-8320 does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson PowerLite 1761W ($649.99), the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro, or the Casio XJ-A256 which is also higher rated.

2 Other reasons to consider the Canon LV-8320

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when Canon released the LV-8320.

Average Projector Brightness

The LV-8320 has a fairly standard projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the LV-8320.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this projector and we think the CP-DH300, and the CP-EW300 both from Hitachi or the Casio XJ-A251 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the WUX-400 (4,000 ANSI lumens), or the WUX400ST (4,000 ANSI lumens) both from Canon or the Epson D6155W (3,500 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
