Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Epson 1284 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to this data projector.

We compared all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think the Epson EB-U32 (£574.91) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
