Video

Supports Full HD

The Optoma HD25e supports full HD, unlike most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this multimedia projector which do not support full HD.

There are a number of other data projectors which support full HD currently available that you might want to consider including the Optoma HD25e, or the Epson EH-TW5910 (£899) which both of have better reviews.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Optoma EH200ST (£726) is also worth considering.
