6 Reasons For

Supports Full HD

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MSWU-81E, the MSWU-81E supports full HD.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the data projectors of a comparable type and age to the MSWU-81E the projector brightnesss range from 300 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,900 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 8,300 ANSI lumens, the Barco MSWU-81E's projector brightness is one of the brightest amongst comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Barco MSWU-81E is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The resolution of all similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MSWU-81E ranges from nHD (640x360) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The MSWU-81E supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA). Across all projectors of a similar age and spec to the MSWU-81E the best resolution is 4096 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Two Lamps Quantitys

The MSWU-81E has more lamps quantitys than most of the projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MSWU-81E. This Barco projector is a two lamps quantity multimedia projector compared to most of the comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MSWU-81E which only have one lamps quantity.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The dimmest projector brightness (economic mode) of similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the MSWU-81E is 1,000 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 15,000 ANSI lumens. At 5,800 ANSI lumens, the MSWU-81E has a quite bright projector brightness (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MSWU-81E.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The Barco MSWU-81E does not support 3D, unlike most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the MSWU-81E.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The MSWU-81E does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MSWU-81E do have a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to consider include the Canon LV-WX300 (£319.28).

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than a year, the Barco MSWU-81E does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson EH-TW5350 (£517.22).

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

Projectors of a comparable type and age to the MSWU-81E have service life of lamps of between 1,500h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 5,200h. With a service life of lamp of only 1,500 hour, the Barco MSWU-81E has one of the shorter service life of lamps amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of projectors that have been on the market for more than a year is 800h and the longest is 75,000h. With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 2,500 hours, the MSWU-81E has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the MSWU-81E.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

The quietest noise level of projectors of this age and spec is 22dB, the loudest is 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. At 43 decibels, the MSWU-81E has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MSWU-81E.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Canon LX-MU700 (£7,915.20) (41dB).

Fairly Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The MSWU-81E has one of the louder noise level (economic mode)s (38 decibels) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. The noise level (economic mode)s of projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MSWU-81E range from 26dB to 40dB.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The MSWU-81E is in the most expensive 1% of all the projectors of a comparable spec and age that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the MSWU-81E will cost £296 over 1 year to run.

Chart

Very Heavy

When compared to other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MSWU-81E, the Barco MSWU-81E's weight of 32.5 kilograms is one of the heaviest. The lightest similar spec data projector that has been on the market for around the same time as the MSWU-81E is 2.2kg heavy and the heaviest is 33kg.
