The H9500BD supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[plb_2301495_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
