Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPLSX536M has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
