Video

Supports Full HD

The Optoma WU416 supports full HD. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as this data projector also support full HD.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider including a cheaper projector such as the Optoma EH416 (£794.21) or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Optoma HD37 (£687.91).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma WU416 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this multimedia projector.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the X320UST (£857.50), and the EH416 (£794.21) both from Optoma or the Casio XJ-F10X (£827.84) all of which are cheaper are also worth considering.
