Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-CX236 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Epson EH-TW6600 (£1,299) which has better reviews; or the Sony VPL-CW256 (£959) which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Benq SU917 (£1,246.98) is also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-CX236 does not support full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EH-TW6600 (£1,299) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
