Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The LG PW800 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the PW600 (£390), and the PH300 (£356.88) both from LG which and both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the LG PW700 (£431.88).

Alternative 34dB noise level projectors currently available which you might want to consider include because of its better review score, the LG PW600 (£390).

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the LG PW700 (£431.88) (31dB), or the Optoma ZX210ST (£499) (34dB).
