8 Reasons For

Supports WiFi Connectivity

Unlike most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PJ WX4240 which do not support WiFi connectivity, the Ricoh PJ WX4240 supports WiFi connectivity.

Alternative multimedia projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available that you might want to look at include the Epson EB-4750W[plb_1949826_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson EB-4850WU[plb_1949825_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Ricoh PJ WX4240 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the PT-VZ570[pl_2843893_price], and the PT-VW535[pl_2843895_price] both from Panasonic which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at including the Epson EB-4850WU[plb_1949825_price].
