We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the Acer X1111[plb_1377014_price], the Infocus IN136[plb_2636280_price], or the Panasonic PT-DZ21[plb_1986217_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PowerLite X17, the PowerLite X17 does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], or the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago, the PowerLite X17 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the EB-X18[pl_2017449_price], or the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price] both from Epson or the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite X17 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PowerLite X17.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the X111[pl_1569768_price], or the X1340[pl_1563541_price] both from Acer or the Epson PowerLite 97[plb_2225046_price].

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the PT-LB280E[pl_3122603_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the PT-TW250[pl_2404089_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Panasonic or the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
