Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 3,000 ANSI lumens. At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma EW556 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to this projector.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Benq MX768 ($1,495) (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Performance

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The Optoma EW556 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 30 decibels) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. Across all the projectors that were launched around the same time as this projector the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB.

We compared all the other 30dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think the Benq MX503 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Optoma EX556 (30dB).
