6 Reasons Against

The PowerLite X21 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] is also worth considering.
