8 Reasons For

Canon Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Canon has good average ratings for its 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors as well as across its entire projector range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Canon WX-520 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Optoma W505 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
