Sony Has Good Data Projector Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Sony projectors and also specifically for Sony 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors and found that in both cases Sony had good reviews compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Sony VPL-DW120 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-DW120 also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper projectors such as the DELL 7700[plb_1406488_price], or the Sony VPL-DX126[plb_1618830_price].
