Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the PJD7820HD has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the PJD7820HD.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Viewsonic PJD6383S[plb_1514462_price] (33dB).

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PJD7820HD has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the PJD7820HD.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD6683WS[plb_1514463_price] is also worth considering.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the IN124[pl_2194103_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the IN126[pl_2194104_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens) both from Infocus.
