Energy

OK Running Costs

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The EB-G6800 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as this multimedia projector also do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the Hitachi CP-WU8461 (£3,970.80), or the Panasonic PT-EZ770 (£3,714.06) are also worth considering.

Not Cheap

The cheapeast data projectors of this age and spec that we found costs £685 and the most expensive costs £5,999. We think that this 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector looks expensive for a multimedia projector of this age and spec.
