That's over six times the resolution of a 720 x 480 data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a comparable age and spec to the UM301. 720 x 480 is also supported by this NEC multimedia projector. In addition, this projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1440 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1200 (W.

A 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all 6000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the UM301.

The worst supported resolution across comparable types of multimedia projector is 720 x 480.
