Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Epson EB-U04 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors that were launched more than a year ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think because of its better review score, the Epson VS345 (£371.79) is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Epson EB-U32 (£574.91).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The Epson EB-U04 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's 11% more resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is in fact the best resolution across all multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to this data projector.

The worst resolution across similar types of multimedia projector is SVGA (800x600).
