Video

Supports Full HD

The MH856UST supports full HD. Most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to this projector also support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors which support full HD currently available including the NEC M403H (£1,134.53) which is cheaper; or the Benq W3000 (£1,199) which has better reviews.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the Hitachi CP-WX5500 (£1,162.31) is also worth considering.
