Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The MW855UST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other new projectors.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Hitachi CP-AX3005 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to consider including the Benq MX854UST, or the Vivitek D755WTIR.
