Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-SW635C does not support full HD. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to this data projector also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A are also worth considering.
