8 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VDL-EW245 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VDL-EW245.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the VPL-EW225, and the VPL-EW245 both from Sony or the DELL S500 ($180.91) which have a better Kagoo Rating™ are also worth considering.
