The Benq W7500 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as this projector.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Epson EH-TW6600 (£1,299).

Supports Full HD

The Benq W7500 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors that have been available for around the same time as this data projector do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors which support full HD currently available including because of their better review scores, the Optoma HD83 (£1,999.99), or the Epson EH-TW6600 (£1,299).
