Looking for an affordable DLP HD projector? InFocus has just announced a range of five new models of which two are 720p capable and the best thing of all is that they're coming in at a really good price point. In fact, InFocus are touting them as its lowest priced projectors, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing.

The new range is called the IN100 series and consists of the IN112, IN114, IN116, IN124 and IN126. The two interesting models are the IN116 and IN126, as they're the models than have a native resolution of 1280×800. The only difference we've managed to make out between the two is that the IN126 is slightly brighter than the IN116 at 2500/3200 lumens (Eco/High) whereas the IN116 only manages 2200/2700 (Eco/High).

That said, the IN116 has a longer lamp life of 6000/5000h (Eco/High) compared to 4000/2500h (Eco/High) for the IN126. InFocus claim that the new models features a new lamp design that lasts 50 percent longer than its previous generation of projectors and considering that projector lamps are quite costly, this is a good thing.

The IN112 only manages 800×600 pixels, while the IN114 and IN124 offer a resolution of 1024×768. These models are more suitable in the office than for home cinema usage. The IN116, IN124 and IN126 all feature HDMI 1.3 video input as well, something the cheaper models are missing.

Price wise these new models are very competitively priced with the IN112 at US$339, the IN114 at US$399, the IN116 and IN124 at US$499 and finally the IN126 at US$599. InFocus will be offering all models globally according to its website, although we have a feeling that the prices might not be the same everywhere.
