8 Reasons For

Sony Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors built by Sony are some of the better projectors according to average expert and user reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

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

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Canon X300ST ($609.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
