WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq PU9730 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PU9730 the resolution ranges from nHD (640x360) (worst) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) (best).

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors that have a resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200) and we think cheaper projectors such as the Barco CTWU-61B is also worth considering.
