Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the PT-FW430U does not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the VPL-VW500ES ($8,999.99), or the VPL-VW600ES ($10,999.00) both from Sony which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
