Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-EX225 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson V11H475020 is also worth considering.
