Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The MW853UST+ does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the MW853UST+ do 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 the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most multimedia projectors of this type and age do not support wi-Fi. The MW853UST+ is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which also has a higher rating.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Acer P1510[plb_2284610_price] (33dB).
