NEC Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

NEC is one of the better rated projector manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and NEC also has good reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC NP-M283X has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-M283X also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the 98H ($561.99), and the EX5230 both from Epson or the Acer H6517ST which has better reviews is also worth considering.
