Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson EB-4550 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors that have been available for more than two years.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Epson PowerLite W16SK which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

The Epson EB-4550 has a pretty average projector brightness (4,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to this projector.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the PT-VW530 (£872.18) (5,000 ANSI lumens), or the PT-VW535 (£1,243.95) (5,000 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic or the Hitachi CP-WU8451 (£1,890) (5,000 ANSI lumens).
