Always look at 'NATIVE RESOLUTION' for a projector. If the native resolution is 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 that's about as sharp as a projector can get these days.

The Optoma is native 1920x1080 resolution, the other model is native 1024x768. So, that's about 2 million pixels compared to about 3/4 of a million pixels. The Optoma will be significantly sharper and can handle natively displaying a true 1080p image.

Looking only at 1080p projectors, and keeping price under $3,000, then the Optoma you referenced is the brightest out there:

It's a good choice.

Going up to WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution you get fewer choices, and they cost more:

I would likely take the Optoma as a first choice.

hmm I agree, I was looking at some projector from Epson, but they seem to be has less brightness on some of the models. would you say the Optoma fits for the business monitor? We had one of the epson projector in which i believe it might have been a home projector..it wasn't as bright and sharp.

Those two are the most unique and offer a great value for what you get.

The first is flat out, the best value I think is out there on a 1080p business class projector. It's a new design, just a few months released, with the latest tech in it and very bright for the money.

The Epson model is a LCD model which can be a good thing, but seems to not be a big deal anymore. The real nicety with the Epson is that it offers interchangeable lenses which may be important in a setup if you want the projector to be placed somewhere specific, and it has lens shift, which also can help with placement flexibility.

If you can put the projector wherever you want, the Optoma is the model to go with.

I don't consider Vivitek on the same quality level as either Optoma or Epson and they would not be a early choice.
