12 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the 7700 which do not support Full HD projection, the DELL 7700 supports Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The DELL 7700 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of this age and type.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Sony VPL-DX126[plb_1618830_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider including the VPL-DW120[pl_1421385_price], or the VPLDW120[pl_2147132_price] both from Sony.
