The highest resolution of the H8550BD is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.
This multimedia projector's resolution (1080p (1920x1080)) is actually the best resolution across all multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the H8550BD.
A SVGA (800x600) native projector resolution is the worst resolution amongst comparable types of multimedia projector.
We compared all the other projectors that have a resolution of 1080p (1920x1080) to this projector and we think a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Infocus IN2128HD, and the Optoma HD421X or you might consider a higher rated multimedia projector such as the Optoma HD161X are also worth considering.
