Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The EB-G6550WU has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to this data projector.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of its better review score, the Epson PowerLite W16SK is also worth considering.

At 5,200 ANSI lumens, the EB-G6550WU has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to this projector.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the PT-EW640E (£2,429.99) (5,400 ANSI lumens), or the PT-EZ580 (£3,155.40) (5,400 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The highest resolution of the EB-G6550WU is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.
