Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma TX785 does not support full HD. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to this multimedia projector also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
