6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The PT-VW431 does not support 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other 3500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-VW431 also do not support 3D.

Does Not Support Full HD

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PT-VW431 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Panasonic PT-VW435N[plb_1788306_price] is also worth considering.
