Video

Supports Full HD

The Optoma DH1017 supports full HD. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including because of its better review score, the Benq W1300 (£773.95).

There are a number of other data projectors which also support full HD which you might want to consider including the Benq W1070+W, or the Vivitek D966HD (£925).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma DH1017 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider include the Epson EB-X24, or the Benq W1300 (£773.95) both of which have better reviews; or the Acer P5307 which is cheaper.

Projector

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma DH1017 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The best resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-VX600 (5,500 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
