We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[pl_2254510_price], or the EH-TW5200[pl_1732117_price] both from Epson or the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[pl_2254510_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens), or the EH-TW5200[pl_1732117_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens) both from Epson which is also higher rated.
