8 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 736 user and expert reviews for Epson projectors and found that on average Epson has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Epson has good ratings specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PowerLite X27 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PowerLite X27.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at including the Epson EB-X27[plb_2896435_price] which is cheaper.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the X152H[pl_2879485_price], or the P1500[pl_3806777_price] both from Acer.
