Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of comparable spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 20,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. At 4,200 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek D966HD has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to this projector.

We compared all the other 4,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma DH1017 is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the EB-1980WU (4,400 ANSI lumens), the 1980WU ($1,443.57) (4,400 ANSI lumens), or the EB-1985WU (4,800 ANSI lumens) all from Epson which is also higher rated.
