Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MX528 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for the last year also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the Benq MS527E.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq MS630ST (£330.02) is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD
