3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EX245, the VPL-EX245 does not support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Other projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which also has a higher rating.
