8 Reasons For

Acceptable Noise Level

One Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW reviewer who reviewed the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW concluded that it was quiet. Cnet.com.au said “And its operation is quiet” in their review of this projector.

Supports Full HD

The Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support full HD and we think because of it's better review score, the W7000+[pl_1403580_price], and the W7500[pl_1995206_price] both from Benq or the Panasonic PT-LZ370U[plb_1900094_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the HC7900DW, the HC7900DW supports 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], the Optoma X315[plb_2326573_price], and the Epson PowerLite Pro G6900WU[plb_1919039_price] is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

This data projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is the most frequently found projector native resolution on data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). 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 Mitsubishi Electric data projector). In addition, this multimedia projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). Across all multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

Most multimedia projectors of this age and spec have between one and three HDMI ports quantitys, including the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW which has two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on data projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

Across all the data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the HC7900DW the noise level (economic mode)s range from 20dB to 40dB. The HC7900DW has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s (only 23 decibels) amongst projectors of this age.

6 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This Mitsubishi Electric projector received an expert rating of 60% from CNET.com.au. Experts aren't convinced by this projector.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The HC7900DW does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the HC7900DW which have a built-in speaker(s).

Other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at include the Optoma X315[plb_2326573_price], or the Epson PowerLite 4855WU[plb_1969833_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the HC7900DW also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EB-Z9900W[plb_2549632_price], the Elmo BOXi MP-350[plb_2578320_price], or the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the HC7900DW the projector brightnesss range from 300 ANSI lumens to 9,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 1,500 ANSI lumen, the HC7900DW has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss amongst data projectors of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 1,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Acer K750[plb_1517123_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the VPL-HW40ES[pl_3286333_price] (1,700 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-HW40ES[pl_2298294_price] (1,700 ANSI lumens) both from Sony or the Optoma HD30[plb_1915718_price] (1,600 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

At only 3,000 hours, the HC7900DW has a quite short service life of lamp compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago. Across all the data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the HC7900DW the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 7,700h.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age have between 1 and 11 VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

2 Other reasons to consider the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW

Released Over Four Years Ago

This Mitsubishi Electric multimedia projector has been on the market for over four years.

Average Noise Level

At 31 decibels, the HC7900DW has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the HC7900DW.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 31dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Benq W700+[plb_1561678_price] which has better reviews.

Although its dark-room picture quality rivals projectors near its price, the Mitsubishi HC7900DW's low light output contributes to making it a worse value...

The Mitsubishi H 7900DW projector can produce very good pictures in a dark room
Exhibits deepenough black levels and accurate color in bright areas
Has lots of viable videoprocessing options
And its operation is quiet
Exhibits deep-enough black levels and accurate color in bright areas
More expensive than similarly performing projectors
Relatively dim
Black and neardark areas are slightly green
Must buy separate emitter for 3D
No 3D glasses included
