Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC UM280X has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson EB-1930 ($999).

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the CP-CW300WN, or the CP-CW250WN both from Hitachi is also worth considering.
