Good Brand

Projectors produced by Infocus generally have good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Over Two Years Old

Infocus released the MS521 over two years ago.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Infocus MS521 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the MS521 also support 3D image projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Benq W1500 which has a better Rating.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Infocus MS521 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the MS521 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq W1500.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Infocus MS521 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider include a cheaper data projector such as the Acer U5310 or you might consider a higher Rating data projector such as the Benq W1500.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the MS521 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Infocus MS521 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Benq W1500 is also worth considering.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MS521 have projector brightness of between 300 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens. At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Infocus MS521 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the MS521.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on comparable spec projectors that are more than two years old.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of WXGA (1280x800) currently available that you might want to look at including the Acer U5310 which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a higher resolution then you might want to consider the Benq W1500 (1080p (1920x1080)) which is also higher rated.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 33 decibels, the Infocus MS521 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the MS521.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 33dB noise level data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W1500.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Acer U5310 (34dB and cheaper).

A 1080i video mode is in fact the best supported supported video mode across all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Across similar types of multimedia projector the worst supported supported video mode is 480p.
