8 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The MSWU-81E supports Full HD projection, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MSWU-81E.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness

Multimedia projectors of this spec and age have projector brightness of between 100 ANSI lumens and 11,000 ANSI lumens. When compared to other similar spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the MSWU-81E that we have checked the projector brightness of, the MSWU-81E's projector brightness of 8,300 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the MSWU-81E is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the MSWU-81E the resolution ranges from nHD (640x360) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The MSWU-81E supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the MSWU-81E. The resolution of all projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MSWU-81E ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 4096 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

The average matrix size of data projectors of a similar age and type to the MSWU-81E is 0.64", and the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.96". The Barco MSWU-81E has a fairly big matrix size (0.67 inches) compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MSWU-81E.

Chart Edit

Two Lamps

Most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MSWU-81E only have one lamp, however the MSWU-81E has two lamps.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Brightness in Economy Mode

With a brightness in economy mode of 5,800 ANSI lumens, the MSWU-81E has a quite bright brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago. The dimmest brightness in economy mode of data projectors that were released one year ago is 1,900 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 15,000 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 4,200 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Lamp Power

The MSWU-81E has one of the bigger lamp power (350 Watts) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of a comparable type and age to the MSWU-81E the lamp power range from 190W to 470W, and the average lamp power is 280W.

Chart Edit

11 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The MSWU-81E does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the MSWU-81E.

Alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the Viewsonic PJD5155 ($239.99) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age support 3D image projection, however the Barco MSWU-81E does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Barco MSWU-81E does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Epson EH-TW5350 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of projectors of this age and spec is 1,500h and the longest is 30,000h. With a lamp service life of only 1,500 hour, the MSWU-81E has one of the shorter lamp service lives amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Barco MSWU-81E is a one VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MSWU-81E have noise levels of between 22dB and 45dB. The MSWU-81E has a quite loud noise level (43 decibels) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the MSWU-81E.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

The average noise level in economy mode of similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the MSWU-81E is 32dB, and the noise levels in economy mode range from 24dB to 40dB. At 38 decibels, the Barco MSWU-81E has a fairly loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

With a weight of 32.5 kilograms, the Barco MSWU-81E is very heavy compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MSWU-81E. Comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the MSWU-81E have weights of between 270g and 33kg.

Chart Edit

Very Wide

Across all the projectors that have been around for more than a year the widths range from 100mm to 670mm, and the average width is 370mm. The MSWU-81E is one of the widest data projectors that were released one year ago (670 millimeters) amongst data projectors of this age.
