Average Projector Brightness

At 2,500 ANSI lumens, the ZW212ST has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as this multimedia projector.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think the LG SA565, and the Viewsonic PJD6353s which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Casio XJ-V1 (2,700 ANSI lumens), the Hitachi CP-AW3019WNM (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Avio MP-50 (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
