Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer X113PH does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as this projector also do not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which also support full HD which you might want to consider including the MS512, or the MW665+ both from Benq or the Acer X133.
