There are a number of other projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper data projectors such as the Sony VPL-EW315[plb_3022931_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-EW345 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this age and type.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Sony VPL-EW315[plb_3022931_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at include the VPL-EW348[pl_3301541_price], or the VPL-CW256[pl_2835371_price] both from Sony.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The VPL-EW345 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 29 decibels) amongst projectors of this age. The noise levels of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EW345 range from 22dB to 45dB.

We compared all the other 29dB noise level multimedia projectors to this projector and we think the Sony VPL-EW315[plb_3022931_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Canon LV-WX300USTi[plb_3022433_price] (33dB), or the Sony VPL-EW348[plb_3301541_price] (29dB).
