Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer Z650 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including the H6502BD (£579.97), or the A1500 (£544.97) both from Acer or the Optoma EH341 (£549) all of which are cheaper.
