6 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Expert review website pcworld.pl scored this data projector 60%. Projector experts are not sure about this multimedia projector.

Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the LG PB62G[plb_1488637_price], the Panasonic PT-DW740ELS[plb_1788305_price], or the Infocus IN8601[plb_1796831_price] which also has a higher rating.
