Video

Supports Full HD

The NEC PA572 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support full HD.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider including the NEC PA522 (£1,999), or the Hitachi CP-WU8451 (£1,890) both of which are cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Ricoh PJ WX4141 (£2,677.50).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC PA572 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the Panasonic PT-EW640E (£2,429.99).

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Panasonic PT-EW730, or the Ricoh PJ WX4141 (£2,677.50) are also worth considering.
