There are a number of other projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might also want to consider including the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price], or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[plb_2254510_price] which is also higher rated.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

When compared to other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the ML1000 that we have checked, the Optoma ML1000's projector brightness of only 1,000 ANSI lumen is one of the dimmest. The dimmest projector brightness of similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the ML1000 is 700 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,200 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[pl_2254510_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens), or the EH-TW5200[pl_1732117_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens) both from Epson which also has a higher rating.

This projector has been on the market for over three years.

1280 X 800 Graphics Resolution
