Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1283 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of their better review scores, the H5380 (£349.97), or the X1383 (£339.99) both from Acer.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Acer P1383 (£460.18) is also worth considering.
