6 Reasons For

Good Brand

2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors produced by Canon have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors) and found that Canon also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Canon LV-7490 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the LV-7490 also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the CP-EW250N[pl_2063296_price], or the CP-EX300[pl_1885822_price] both from Hitachi or the Canon LV-7292[plb_1517999_price] which has better reviews.

In addition, this Canon data projector support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480 and 720 x 576 and 1280 x 720 (HD 720).
