Does Not Support Full HD

The Epson 421i does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as this data projector also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Epson 475Wi ($2,102.34), or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Epson 421i has a very dim projector brightness (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. The dimmest projector brightness of 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this data projector is 100 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Epson EB-425W which has better reviews.

If this Epson projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Sony VPL-SW620C (2,600 ANSI lumens).
