Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of this age and type do not support Full HD projection. The VPL-EW276 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
