6 Reasons For

Supports Full HD

The MSWU-81E supports full HD. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MSWU-81E also support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-VW300ES.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

When compared to other projectors that came out more than a year ago, the MSWU-81E's projector brightness of 8,300 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. The average projector brightness of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MSWU-81E is 4,000 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesss range from 300 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the MSWU-81E is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's 11% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). Across all projectors of this age and type the worst resolution is nHD (640x360) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The MSWU-81E supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA). The worst resolution of all multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the MSWU-81E is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 4096 x 2160.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The MSWU-81E has one of the brighter projector brightness (economic mode)s (5,800 ANSI lumens) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The projector brightness (economic mode)s of comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than a year range from 1,900 ANSI lumens to 15,000 ANSI lumens.

9 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

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

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The Barco MSWU-81E does not support 3D, unlike most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the MSWU-81E.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the Sony VPL-VW300ES, or the Optoma HD161X ($1,099.99) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
