Supports Full HD

The VPL-VW600ES supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors of this age and type do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the LG PF1500 (£749.00), or the Optoma HD91+ (£2,998.99) is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D including the Optoma HD91+ (£2,998.99).

Inferior Picture Quality

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-VW600ES does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-VW600ES which have a built-in speaker(s).
