Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

At 4,500 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-CW255 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to this projector. The average projector brightness of multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 3,300 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesses range from 75 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Benq SU917 ($1,175.74) (5,000 ANSI lumens), or the Christie DHD600-G ($6,645) (5,950 ANSI lumens).
