Summary: The InFocus SP8600 is an excellent projector for both home and office use – its stunning array of colours makes it perfect for movie use, with the 1800 Lumens brightness output making it equally ideal for presentations. It may not match LED projectors for their entry-level price point, but it's got them covered when it comes to image quality.
Excerpt: Usually projectors that cost less than £800 are either aimed at the business/education markets or absolutely rubbish. And there can be no hiding place for shoddiness when you're watching a picture that's 100-inch wide or more.
Excerpt: It’s not wrong to want a massive screen. Incredible detail, fancy motion processing and all that are great, obviously, but it’s hard to beat the spectacle of a truly huge picture. You don’t have to spend a fortune to get one, either, as this InFocus SP8600 proves. For your £800, it can project a picture that’s 300in across. It can be fixed to a mount or ceiling bracket, but the SP8600 seems really to be designed for more occasional, spontaneous use.
Pros: Detailed, balanced, grown-up images, can produce huge pictures, bright lamp, good spec
Cons: Blacks are a little light, no lens shift and long throw can make it tricky to position
Excerpt: Usually projectors that cost less than £800 are either aimed at the business/education markets or absolutely rubbish. And there can be no hiding place for shoddiness when you’re watching a picture that’s 100in wide or more. With this in mind, I was wary of the InFocus SP8600. But then scepticism changed to enthusiasm when I found out it uses a DarkChip 3 (DC3) chipset.
