The IN8606HD is the latest in a long, long line of InFocus video projectors stretching back more than ten years. With its native 1080p resolution, sub-$1000 price point, and high light output, the IN8606HD is a solid performer in the living room and a decent choice for entry-level home theater. Features like a 1.5:1 zoom lens, 12V trigger, long-life lamp, and VESA 3D port help to distinguish the IN8606HD among the competition. However, the inclusion of a 2x-speed color wheel limits the IN8606HD's appeal, as does the lack of a hardwired control panel, the uncomfortable remote control, and the inability to adjust preset image modes or disable features like Dynamic Dimming.
All in all, the IN8606HD is a solid projector, but stiff competition in the sub-$1000 home video projector market means that it is not the top performer in any particular area, making it a hard sell to budget-conscious consumers who want the best bang for their buck.
