Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec, the Optoma TW615-GOV has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the Epson V11H475020 are also worth considering.
