8 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

Data projector expert review site PC Mag scored this projector 70%.

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Infocus multimedia projectors and also specifically for Infocus data projectors and found that in both cases Infocus had good ratings compared to other brands.

Good Size

One Infocus IN1142 owner said in their reviews that this projector was lightweight. Pcmag.com mentioned in their review of this projector on expert website PC Mag two years ago “A 700-lumen rating in a small, lightweight projector.” and gave this projector a score of 70 out of 100.

Good Connectivity

One person concluded that this projector was good in terms of HDMI connections. Expert review site Pcmag.com wrote “The only connection choice is an HDMI port” in their review and gave the product a score of 70 out of 100.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Infocus IN1142 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the IN1142.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Optoma H111[plb_2696721_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq W770ST[plb_1561748_price] which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Optoma W350[plb_2797870_price].

Across all the data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the IN1142 the weights range from 2.2g to 26kg, and the average weight is 5kg.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Infocus IN1142 does not support 3D, unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the IN1142.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support 3D which you might also want to consider including the Optoma H111[plb_2696721_price]; or the Benq W770ST[plb_1561748_price].

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Infocus IN1142 does not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which also support full HD which you might want to consider including the Optoma DH1008[plb_2529465_price] or the Optoma GT1080[plb_2415608_price].

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors of a comparable age and type to the IN1142 is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 9,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens. When compared to other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the IN1142, the Infocus IN1142's projector brightness of only 700 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest.

There are a number of other 700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might also want to look at including the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] which has better reviews.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Optoma GT1080[plb_2415608_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated) or the DH1008[pl_2529465_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the H111[pl_2696721_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper) both from Optoma.

Alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the LG PW700[plb_2778836_price] or the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price].

3 Other reasons to consider the Infocus IN1142

Released Over Two Years Ago

This Infocus data projector was released over two years ago.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The Infocus IN1142 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 51% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080).

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

At 34 decibels, the Infocus IN1142 has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the IN1142.

We compared all the other 34dB noise level multimedia projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the W750[pl_1561747_price], and the W770ST[pl_1561748_price] both from Benq which has better reviews is also worth considering.
