Video

Supports Full HD

The EB-1980WU supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors which support full HD and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson Home Cinema 600 is also worth considering.
