5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-EW276 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPL-EW276 also do not support 3D image projection.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-EW276 do not support Full HD projection. The Sony VPL-EW276 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
