9 Reasons Against

Poor High Def TV

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support full HD. The Optoma DX325 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the PJD7820HD[pl_1536139_price], or the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price] both from Viewsonic which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11000[plb_2549617_price].
