7 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

On average projectors from Panasonic are rated 90%, which is in the top 1% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 3500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-VW440U, the PT-VW440U has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Asus P2 ($208.66) which has better reviews.
