The Asus B1MR supports 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the B1MR also support 3D image projection.

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year, the Asus B1MR supports Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think a cheaper data projector such as the NEC V302W[plb_2988132_price] or you might consider a higher rated data projector such as the Acer H6517ST[plb_3929999_price] are also worth considering.

Other data projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at include the Hitachi CP-WX3041WN[plb_3792952_price].
