Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma S311 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma X312 ($963.83) is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the S313 ($535.60), or the W310 both from Optoma.
