Video

Supports Full HD

The CP-WX8255A supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to this projector do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD to this data projector and we think because of its better review score, the Infocus IN3118HD (£899.99) is also worth considering.
