Supports Full HD

The Panasonic PT-FX400U supports full HD, unlike most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to this projector which do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD and we think the Sony VPL-VW500ES ($8,999.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
