Chart

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer C205 has a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other 1000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the C205 which do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the SX-6000, and the WX-6000 both from Canon or the Favi Entertainment LED-2 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
