Video

Supports Full HD

The Epson 5030ub supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to this multimedia projector do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the Optoma GT1080 (£584.99), or the LG PF1500 (£900.66) are also worth considering.
