Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Sony VPL-EX246 does not support full HD. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Epson 475Wi ($2,102.34), or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
