2 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most projectors of a similar spec and age to the EW400 do not support full HD. The Optoma EW400 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support full HD including the PJD7820HD[pl_1536139_price], or the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price] both from Viewsonic which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Optoma EW400 does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11000[plb_2549617_price] is also worth considering.
