9 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Epson 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors have good ratings as do all multimedia projectors manufactured by Epson.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 730HD has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson EH-TW6600[plb_2495277_price].

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Optoma HD141[plb_2415610_price] is also worth considering.
