We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think the Epson EB-4950WU[plb_1949830_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support 3D including the NEC PA522[plb_2406092_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PA572, the NEC PA572 has a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper data projectors such as the Panasonic PT-EW640E[plb_2529477_price].

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Panasonic PT-EW730[plb_2130354_price], or the NEC PA522[plb_2406092_price] is also worth considering.
