We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Asus B1MR[plb_2868776_price] is also worth considering.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the PowerLite X27[pl_2896329_price], and the EB-X27[pl_2896435_price] both from Epson which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at including the Epson 965H[plb_2953833_price].
