6 Reasons For

Supports Wi-Fi

Unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the M900HD which do not support wi-Fi, the DELL M900HD supports wi-Fi.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support wi-Fi currently available which you might want to consider including the Gigabyte BRIX[plb_2116585_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The DELL M900HD has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the M900HD.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson EH-TW490[plb_1731975_price] is also worth considering.
