The PowerLite 4650 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PowerLite 4650 also do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the W311, or the HD25 (£799.00) both from Optoma or the Benq W750 (£285.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Epson PowerLite 4650 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PowerLite 4650 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq W7000+, the Panasonic PT-RZ470 (£3,351.60), or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub is also worth considering.
