Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to this projector the projector brightnesses range from 100 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the EB-426Wi has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

We compared all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think the Epson EB-425W (£748.66) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Sony VPL-SW620C (£1,036.20) (2,600 ANSI lumens).

We compared all the other 35dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think the Epson BrightLink 485Wi which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Hitachi CP-WU8440 (£1,166.66) (35dB).
