The Epson EB-98 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector also do not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the Epson Home Cinema 600 which also has a higher rating.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson EB-98 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think because of its better review score, the NEC NP-M282 is also worth considering.
