Average Projector Brightness

The Optoma EH300 has a fairly average projector brightness (3,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think the Viewsonic PJD6544W (£654.04) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Optoma X401 (£689.20) (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
