This projector was released in September 2014.


Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the H1185HD has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses amongst data projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of data projectors that came out more than two years ago is 3,400 ANSI lumens.

We compared all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq W710ST which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Epson PowerLite X27 (£349.27) (2,700 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
