Reviews

Good Brand

Data projectors built by Canon are some of the better data projectors according to average reviews from users and experts. 100% of those that bought a Canon projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Canon WX-520 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to this projector.

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper projectors such as the Infocus IN5316HDA ($3,228.45).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq SP920P ($1,999.00) is also worth considering.
