The Benq MS527 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the MS527.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MS506[plb_3066021_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most data projectors of this age and spec do not support full HD. The Benq MS527 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.
