Video

Supports Full HD

The VPL-CH370 supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec do not support full HD.

Alternative projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to look at include the Vivitek D7180HD (£1,304.90) which is cheaper.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Sony VPL-CH355 (£1,427.39), or the DELL 7700 (£1,500) are also worth considering.
