Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M271X has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think cheaper data projectors such as the VPL-DW122 (£385), the VPL-DX142 (£383.40), and the VPL-DX127 (£380.33) all from Sony is also worth considering.
