Plus, their slim, compact design and light weight make them as easy to move around as they are to install. Certifications and Standards: UL and c-UL (US/Canada), FCC (US/Canada), CE (Europe). IN112 SVGA Projector 2700 Lumens is listed under projectors in the InFocus projectors and accessories section.
I had to spend nearly 20 minutes adjusting the color, brightness, and contrast settings to get to the point where it matched the standard I required for displaying medical images. However, I’m happy with the final result and the color appearance of images is quite good and the image is sharp across the entire display with no evidence of optical distortion. The default color settings of the projector seem way off from where I would expect them to be. In particular, pastel colors are weak and poorly reproduced until you tweak the system and then they look fine.
The picture in the ad showed a carrying case, but there was none in the box. It would not keep me from ordering the projector, but the picture is deceiving.
It would be nice to get a lens cap if there is no case to store the projector, but there was also no cap. Again, I would still buy the projector.
The fan does not continue running after the lamp is turned off. This is probably because this is a low end projector.
There is no handle for carrying it.
Has an excellent image after some color contrast adjustments.
Lots of lumens… images look very good even in large, bright rooms.
Projector does not weigh you down when carrying it.
Fans are acceptably quiet.
Summary: I was at first thinking of returning it because of the funky colors, but I’m now totally happy with it after the adjustments. You have to tweak everything it seems to get it to look right, but it is worth the effort. I would purchase this again, but maybe also look at the next step up in the InFocus line to compare the options and price to this model.
This unit is very easy to set up – just plug in the included VGA cable and you’re ready to go. The instructions are brief and obvious and there’s an online support site. The only issue I had was that Windows 7 downgraded the resolution when I plugged it in to 800×600 but actually it’s capable of running at 1920 pixels, which improves the projected quality of movies very noticeably. It takes a minute to change the resolution in Windows, so not a big deal.
Overall, I couldn’t be happier. It would be nice if it had an HDMI port and a lens cover but at this price it’s a great option for home office use and living room theater experiments.
I’m very pleased with this projector. I’m using it in the office for run-of-the-mill PowerPoint presentations, and it works very well for those. No more having to have people huddle over a screen – everyone can see the images at the same time!
Setup is straightforward, as is hooking it up to a PC (a Windows 7 laptop). The projector is compact and lightweight, which is good, but I would be concerned about traveling with this. It does not seem rugged enough to withstand much abuse. I’ll be using it in the office 95% of the time, and only taking it to a client site once in a blue moon (and only local clients at that), so it should be fine. If you’re a regular traveler at the least you’ll want to get a very good case.
The picture quality was pretty good. Images are very bright and easy to see even in a lit room, despite the fact that I’m projecting it just on the wall, rather than on an actual screen. Quiet when running, and it has an “eco” mode that uses less electricity (and supposedly also extends the lamp life).
My only quibble is that the colors are a bit off. Not way off, but enough to be noticeable on images such as logos where I had a point of comparison. A bit of fiddling made it better, but it still was not perfect.
This is not a significant issue for my needs since I’m only projecting PPT charts and graphs where spot-on color matching is irrelevant. But, if you have more precise color rendering needs, this may be too basic of a projector for you.
Excellent choice if you need a basic projector for the office that works well, is easy to use, and won’t break the bank. Highly recommend.
I found i very much like HDTV experience in that when we first fired up the Power Point presentation… it was EASY to see the flaws… the dots in letters and not so perfect edges. It was bright enough to work well in a 20X20 room with most overhead lights still on. HOWEVER.. it wasn’t long before I quit paying attention to the presentation clarity, and payed attention to the presentation.
No HDMI or DVI connectors, but great keystone adjusting. Raising foot could be a little wider for left to right stability.
All in all, at $300, I would buy again!
This morning, I adjusted the settings on my laptop to use the projector like a second screen. I have a movie going on it, and am using my laptop screen to type out this review right now. The image is almost as good as a tv right now, and this is in my sunlit room (two giant east-facing windows during the morning – the only way to make it a tiny bit sunnier would be to take the projector outside!). When the image is dark, it is a bit harder to see the boundaries and dark shapes. However, I’ve seen projectors where you just can’t see anything even if it is just the room light on. It beats all the projectors I have ever seen before in daylight.
There aren’t any speakers on the projector. However, I would rather have a great image from the projector and just buy separate speakers. Not including speakers also allows the projector to be really small and really light-weight. It’s so easy to carry. It will be really easy to transport and set up somewhere else. For now, I’m just using the speakers on my laptop since it is hooked up anyway. I plan to buy speakers later when I want to set up my DVD player with it, but spending a couple extra bucks for computer speakers would also do the trick.
It doesn’t come with a case or a lens cap, but I would imagine they are easy to buy separately. I don’t see this as an issue.
