Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma X315 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as this projector.

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to look at including because of their better review scores, the Optoma GT1080 (£584.99), the Infocus IN1110A (£539.56), or the Viewsonic PLED-W800 (£519.02).

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma GT1080 (£584.99), or the LG PF1500 (£897.77).

Average Noise Level

The Optoma X315 has a pretty typical noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as this projector.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Sony VPL-EW255 (£488.85) (30dB and cheaper); or the Infocus IN1110A (£539.56) (33dB and higher rated).
