Video

Supports Full HD

The PowerLite Pro Z9870 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to this projector do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors which support full HD and we think the Benq W1060 (£399.96) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Epson PowerLite Pro Z8350W (85,000 ANSI lumens).
