Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Epson PowerLite 99W does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the MH680, or the W1400 both from Benq is also worth considering.
