Video

Supports Full HD

The Epson EB-Z9870U supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to this projector do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think because of it's better review score, the PJD7820HD ($854.99), and the PRO8600 ($3,500.00) both from Viewsonic is also worth considering.
