Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1340 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of its better review score, the Epson V11H475020 is also worth considering.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support full HD including the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A.
