InFocus X9 Projector Review
Projector Lamp Life
The InFocus X9 offers one of the longest lamp life ratings around. While a rare projector or two have claimed up to 5000 hours in low lamp (eco) mode, even most of those only claim 2000 hours with lamp at full brightness. The typical projector claims 2000 hours at full power, and 3000 in low lamp, compared to the X9 projector’s 3500 hour claim at full power, and 4000 hours in low power.
This means that your long term cost of operation will be significantly lower for the X9, than most competing projectors.
Doubles as a Widescreen Business Projector
The combination of small size and light weight, plus support for 1280×800 resolution (the most popular for widescreen laptops), as well as a wide range of other resolutions, all the way up to UXGA (1600×1200). In addition, its brightness is similar to most entry level business projectors (typically 2000 – 2500 lumens). That does make the X9 bright enough to be a dual use projector.
Audio Built In
Finding a speaker on a home theater projector is truly a rarity. It occurs to me that BenQ has done so on a couple of models, but generally, home theater projectors (other than, of course, all-in-one projectors) come without audio.
Having the audio on the X9 can be handy, especially if you plan on moving the projector to different locations. True, it’s only a small 2 watt speaker, but, in a pinch it can provide you with sound, while playing a game console, or even to watch some TV, in a room without an audio setup.
