Video

Supports Full HD

The CVWU-31B supports full HD. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to this data projector do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Projector

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The highest resolution of the CVWU-31B is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as this multimedia projector.

Amongst comparable types of projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Barco CVWU-31B has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for a similar time to this data projector.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think because of their better review scores, the D795WT (£887.99), and the Qumi Q2 (£179.99) both from Vivitek are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Hitachi CP-HD9320 (£8,960.40) (8,200 ANSI lumens).

Ports & Interfaces

Does Not Have a DVI Port

The CVWU-31B does not have a DVI port, although this is within the context that most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not have a DVI port.

Lamps

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

Similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this projector have service life of lamps of between 1,500h and 30,000h. The CVWU-31B has a quite short service life of lamp (only 2,250 hours) compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to this projector.

Performance

Average Noise Level

At 30 decibels, the Barco CVWU-31B has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Barco CVHD-31B (£2,832.82) (30dB), the Sony VPLDW126 (£458.41) (30dB), or the Vivitek D7180HD (£1,304.90) (30dB).
