Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched in the last 12 months, the Epson Home Cinema 1040 supports Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq HT2050 ($629.99) is also worth considering.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is in fact the best resolution amongst all similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the Home Cinema 1040.
