InFocus X3

£799 inc VAT

Manufacturer: InFocus

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

InFocus has made waves in the projector market with its popular X1 and X2 models. Now the third incarnation, the X3, has arrived.

InFocus has made waves in the projector market with its popular X1 and X2 models. Now the third incarnation, the X3, has arrived.

But whereas the X1 and X2 were aiming largely at those on a tight budget, the X3 has rather loftier ambitions. Seeing XGA support on an £800 projector is a huge step in the right direction, and the DVI connector is another hint of quality.

Otherwise, the X3 follows in the traditions of previous InFocus projectors. The brightness rating should be ample for most light conditions, and the X3 is highly portable. Best of all, the projector boasts InFocus' usual excellent image quality.

  • Build Quality: We give this item 8 of 10 for build quality
  • Features: We give this item 8 of 10 for features
  • Value for Money: We give this item 9 of 10 for value for money
  • Overall: We give this item 8 of 10 overall

There aren't too many XGA projectors at this price. It is rather noisier than we'd like, but if deep resolution support is what you need, this is very good for the money.
