Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The EB-421i does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to this projector also do not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support full HD including the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesses of 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as this multimedia projector range from 100 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens. The Epson EB-421i has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think the Epson EB-425W (£748.66) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
