Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-EX226 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to this multimedia projector.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Epson V11H475020 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Epson 475Wi ($2,102.34), or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating.
