Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to consider include the PJD7820HD[pl_1536139_price], or the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price] both from Viewsonic which is also higher rated.

Other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to consider include the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11000[plb_2549617_price].
