It was April 2016 when Vivitek released the DX255.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek DX255 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Epson EB-S27 (£329.97) which is cheaper; or the Acer X152H (£375) which has better reviews.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the NEC V332X (£376.21) is also worth considering.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the Acer X152H (£375) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
