Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MW843 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to consider include the Optoma DH1011 ($806.62), or the Benq MX768 ($1,495) which has better reviews.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Benq MX822ST ($1,095) is also worth considering.
