Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Optoma W306 (£634.90) which is cheaper; or the ML1500E (£649.99), and the X401 (£689.20) both from Optoma which has better reviews are also worth considering.
