Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The EB-455Wi does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to this projector also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The EB-455Wi has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of its better review score, the Canon WUX400ST.
