Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years, the PowerLite S17 does not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson PowerLite S17 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this age and spec also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to look at including because of its better review score, the NEC NP-M282.

Projector

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The Epson PowerLite S17 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).
