Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year which do not support Full HD projection, the HD28DSE supports Full HD projection.

Alternative data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might want to look at include a cheaper projector such as the Epson EH-TW5300[plb_3024661_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the LG PF1500[plb_2938210_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the HD28DSE, the Optoma HD28DSE has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper data projector such as the Vivitek Q7 Plus[plb_2729062_price], or the Epson EH-TW5300[plb_3024661_price] or you might consider a better rated data projector such as the LG PF1500[plb_2938210_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma HD28DSE supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Vivitek Q7 Plus[plb_2729062_price], and the Epson EH-TW5300[plb_3024661_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Chart Edit
