Affordable, low-maintenance projector balances brightness and color to fit business and education environments.

Yet the trade-off isn't bad for most business uses because the industry has reached a level where there are lumens to spare. The XD510U is actually rated less bright than previous models. Plus it's an effort to find a better balance between brightness and color, which is where the XD510U is at its best.

It can put out the light against high-ambient light when necessary, but it can also offer a better picture when enough brightness is enough. Even better, while getting there still takes a few menu adjustments, Mitsubishi has offered presets that get you half way there with little effort or eye for color during setup. If you have the wherewithal to do better, the XD510U can return the favor.
