4 Reasons For

Canon Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Canon is one of the superior data projector manufacturers according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Canon also has good ratings for its 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the WX450, the Canon WX450 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Casio XJ-A246[plb_2223326_price].

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection. The Canon WX450 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of this spec and age do not support WiFi connectivity. The Canon WX450 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
