6 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-EX401 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other recently released 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the DELL 4220[plb_3820929_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
