At 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Benq MW519 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the MX816ST[pl_1550166_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the MX620[pl_2024732_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) both from Benq or the Acer X123[plb_2717080_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
