Video

Supports Full HD

The NEC NP-PA550 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to this projector do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector ($499) is also worth considering.
