At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the H6510BD has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this data projector.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think cheaper projectors such as the Acer H6517ST ($500.00) is also worth considering.

If this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Benq MH530 ($509.99) (3,200 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
