7 Reasons For

Infocus Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Based on 132 user and expert reviews, Infocus has good ratings for its projectors. Infocus also has good ratings specifically for its data projectors compared to other brands.

Supports Full HD

The Infocus SP1080 supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN119HD ($451.99), the NEC V332X ($464.74), or the Epson EH-TW5210.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Infocus SP1080 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the SP1080 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the LG PW800 ($449.99), the Infocus IN119HD ($451.99), and the Viewsonic PJD6352 ($529.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the LG PW800 ($449.99), the Infocus IN119HD ($451.99), or the Viewsonic PJD6352 ($529.99).

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Viewsonic PJD5255 ($307.00) (34dB) which also has a higher rating.
