Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PowerLite 580 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the PowerLite 580 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the EB-X24[pl_2017451_price], and the 1975W[pl_3009713_price] both from Epson is also worth considering.
