9 Reasons For

Popular Choice

The MP-CL1 is one the top selling projector currently available for purchase according to Amazon sales data.

Sony Has Good Data Projector Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Sony projectors and also specifically for Sony projectors and found that in both cases Sony had good ratings compared to other brands.

Good Product Quality

A number of customers thought it was good quality. Mr. P. Wilkinson mentioned in their review of this projector “* 3.5mm audio jack out has a decent quality and no feedback or interference Con”.

Easy to Use

One Sony MP-CL1 reviewer who reviewed it mentioned that it was easy to setup. Wesley said in October “Super easy to set up and the picture quality is very good! Not tested the full length of the batterie” and scored it very highly.

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was easy to use. In October Mr. P. Wilkinson mentioned in their review of the Sony MP-CL1 “It was a must for me! * It's tiny, so small enough for me to use a mobile phone dash mount to clam device in place”.

Acceptable Noise Level

One Sony MP-CL1 owner who purchased this projector reckoned that it was quiet. Mr. P. Wilkinson mentioned on Amazon a few weeks ago “* Fan is quiet still after a full length Movie” in their review of this projector.

Good Picture Quality

One person who reviewed it thought it had good picture quality.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Sony MP-CL1 supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that came out in the last 12 months do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available including because of it's better review score, the Vivitek Qumi Q6 ($299.99).

Narrow

When compared to other projectors that were released around the same time as the MP-CL1, the width of the Sony MP-CL1 of only 149.5 millimeters is one of the narrowest. The average width of projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MP-CL1 is 370mm.

Chart Edit

Light

Projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MP-CL1 have weights of between 2.7g and 28kg. When compared to other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MP-CL1 that we have checked the weight of, the Sony MP-CL1's weight of only 210 grams is one of the lightest.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Poor Connectivity

One Sony MP-CL1 reviewer concluded that it was not wifi compatible. Mr. P. Wilkinson mentioned in their review of this projector this year “* The wifi cast service cant be used from iPhone/iPad” .

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the new comparable spec data projectors the projector brightness range from 37 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens. At only 37 ANSI lumens, the Sony MP-CL1 has a very dim projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the MP-CL1.

If this Sony projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the X340 (3,100 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the H114 (3,400 ANSI lumens and cheaper) both from Optoma.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Sony MP-CL1 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MP-CL1.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Vivitek Qumi Q6 ($299.99); or the Optoma X340.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Sony MP-CL1 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MP-CL1.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the X340, or the H114 both from Optoma; or the Vivitek Qumi Q6 ($299.99).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MP-CL1 do not support Full HD projection. The Sony MP-CL1 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Optoma H114 which is also cheaper.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of only 2,000 hours, the Sony MP-CL1 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MP-CL1. The lamp service lives of projectors that are a comparable age to the MP-CL1 range from 1,500h to 30,000h.
