7 Reasons For

Canon Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Canon has good average ratings for its 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire projector range.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Canon WX-520 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the WX-520 also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The Canon WX-520 has a fairly bright projector brightness (5,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the WX-520. The average projector brightness of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the WX-520 is 4,100 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 5,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Sony VPLFH36/W[plb_1477017_price] which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Canon WX-520 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). In addition, this multimedia projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all projectors of a similar spec and age to the WX-520 the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Fairly Big Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 12 times zoom factor, the Canon WX-520 has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst data projectors of this age. The digital zooms of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the WX-520 range from 1.3x to 12x, and the average digital zoom is 4.5x.

Chart Edit

Two Audio (L,R) Ins

Most multimedia projectors of this spec and age have between one and two audio (L,R) ins, including the Canon WX-520 which has two audio (L,R) ins.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Canon WX-520 does not support full HD. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the WX-520 also do not support full HD.

Other projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to consider include the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago, the Canon WX-520 does not support 3D.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support 3D which you might also want to look at including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the WX-520, the Canon WX-520 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
