With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PJD7820HD has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PJD7820HD.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the S316[pl_2280092_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the W316[pl_2136073_price] (3,400 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma or the Infocus IN124[plb_2194103_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens).
