Average Projector Brightness

The NP-PE401H has a pretty standard projector brightness (4,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector.

We compared this projector to all the other 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the 3M X46 is also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Ricoh PJ X5360N (4,200 ANSI lumens), the Hitachi CP-EX400 (4,200 ANSI lumens), or the NEC M420 (4,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
