Supports Full HD

The DLA-X30 supports full HD, as do most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as this data projector.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think the Acer H9500BD, and the Sony VPL-HW30ES which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the projector brightnesses range from 300 ANSI lumens to 9,200 ANSI lumens. The DLA-X30 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 1,300 ANSI lumen) amongst projectors of this age.

We compared all the other 1,300 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-HW30ES is also worth considering.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the HD30 (1,600 ANSI lumens), or the W311 (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma which also has a higher rating.
