�Don't compare to a $1000 projector. It is a $100 projector, but gives totally good quality of image! I actually don't find it much worse than the expensive projectors used in my company. I haven't brought a screen yet, in the picture, I am projecting to a dark green wall but still the image is good, even with the lights on! The projector itself has a speaker. Also it comes with HDMI and ordinary TV cable and a remoter. It is light and small. I am satisfied with the quality vs. the price. Totally worth it!
