WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution
The highest resolution of the PGWU-61B is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over 10 times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of 280 x 800. Projectors projector native resolutions range from 280 x 800 (worst) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) (best).

Has a DVI Port
The PGWU-61B has a DVI port. Most of the other data projectors do not have a DVI port.
Quite Short Service Life of Lamp
