DesignTechnica reviews the InFocus X1 Projector:
" The X-1, introduced by INFOCUS in late 2002, is aimed primarily at the business projector market. It features an excellent Faroudja DCDi de-interlacing chip and is combined with a Pixelworks scalar chipset used for scaling and other functions. It is an SVGA resolution DLP (Digital Light Processing) projector (800x600 native resolution) that utilizes a single chip display with a rotating color wheel, but the picture quality belies the numbers. Not surprisingly, shortly after its introduction it was discovered by home theater enthusiasts and quickly became the entry level standard for that market. When INFOCUS dropped the MSRP from $1500 to $999, it took off in popularity as the low cost ticket to front projection home theaters.

While it suffers minor deficiencies when compared to projectors costing three to four times as much, as a first home theater projector (or business display projector) it is unparalleled. Once it is seen it in the proper environment, anyone will be impressed by the picture quality that a projector under $1000 can deliver."
