Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma W311 does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the W311 also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[plb_2301495_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
