5 Reasons For

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

At 5,900 ANSI lumens, the Barco PGWU-61B has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year. The projector brightnesss of similar spec multimedia projectors that were released one year ago range from 300 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The Barco PGWU-61B has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's 11% more resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) data projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago the best resolution is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is nHD (640x360).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The PGWU-61B 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 common resolution supported by data projectors of a similar age and type to the PGWU-61B. The worst resolution of all similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the PGWU-61B is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 4096 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

With a matrix size of 0.67 inches, the PGWU-61B has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the PGWU-61B. The matrix sizes of projectors that were released one year ago range from 0.45" to 0.96", and the average matrix size is 0.64".

Chart Edit

Very Big Bulb Power

The average bulb power of projectors of a similar age and type to the PGWU-61B is 290W. With a bulb power of 465 Watts, the PGWU-61B has a very big bulb power compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the PGWU-61B.

13 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on data projectors that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The Barco PGWU-61B does not support 3D, unlike most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the PGWU-61B.

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

Does Not Support Full HD

Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago support full HD, however the PGWU-61B does not support full HD.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support full HD which you might want to look at including the Sony VPL-VW300ES which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for more than a year, the Barco PGWU-61B does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson EH-TW5350.
