We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma DX346[plb_2212801_price], or the Epson EH-TW5100[plb_2591283_price] which is also cheaper.

Other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to consider include the Epson EH-TW5100[plb_2591283_price].
