With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the MW817ST has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this data projector.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MW663 is also worth considering.
