Video

Supports Full HD

The NEC UM280X supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of this spec and age which do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including the Hitachi CP-CX300WN which is cheaper.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support full HD including the CP-CW300WN (£727.25), or the CP-X5022 (£786.23) both from Hitachi.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC UM280X has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Sony VPL-SW235 (£656.73) which is cheaper; or the Epson EB-1930 (£699) which has better reviews.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider include the Hitachi CP-CW250WN (£715.20).
