Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-EW226 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as this data projector.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Canon WX (£346.15) which has better reviews; or the Canon LV-X300 (£291.61) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years have projector brightnesses of between 1,800 ANSI lumens and 3,200 ANSI lumens. At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-EW226 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this projector.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Canon LV-X300 (£291.61) (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper) or the Canon WX (£346.15) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
