8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Sony projectors have an average rating of 89%, which is in the top 16% of all projector brands that we have looked at.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-DW122, the VPL-DW122 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper projector such as the VPL-DX142[pl_2446393_price], or the VPL-DX127[pl_2514843_price] both from Sony or you might consider a better rated projector such as the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price].

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many projectors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-DW122 is 230h, the longest is 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,800h. At 10,000 hours, the Sony VPL-DW122 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPL-DW122.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 5,000 hours, the Sony VPL-DW122 has a quite long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The shortest lamp service life of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,400h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The narrowest 3000:1 contrast ratio data projector that is a comparable age to the VPL-DW122 is 120mm wide, the widest is 510mm, and the average width is 360mm. The Sony VPL-DW122 is fairly narrow (only 315 millimeters) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-DW122.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 2.5 kilograms, the VPL-DW122 is quite light compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-DW122. The average weight of data projectors of this type and age is 4.9kg.

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-DW122 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-DW122 also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-DW122 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-DW122 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Sony VPL-DW122 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-DW122 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The VPL-DW122 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 2,600 ANSI lumens) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-DW122 have projector brightness of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

Alternative 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might also want to consider include the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price] which has better reviews; or the Sony VPL-DX127[plb_2514843_price] which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Sony VPL-DX147[plb_2516968_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens).

Quite Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

When compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-DW122, the VPL-DW122's brightness in economy mode of only 1,500 ANSI lumen is one of the dimmest. Multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-DW122 have brightness in economy mode of between 1,500 ANSI lumens and 4,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-DW122 the RMS rated power range from 0.5W to 20W. When compared to other multimedia projectors of this spec and age that we have assessed, the RMS rated power of the VPL-DW122 of only 1 Watt is one of the lowest.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Colour Light Output

With a colour light output of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-DW122 has a fairly dim colour light output compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPL-DW122. The colour light outputs of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 2,500 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 3,100 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The VPL-DW122 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port data projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The Sony VPL-DW122 has a quite loud noise level (38 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago the noise levels range from 26dB to 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

We compared this data projector to all the other 38dB noise level data projectors and we think the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price] which has better reviews; or the Sony VPL-DX127[plb_2514843_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Sony VPL-DX147[plb_2516968_price] (38dB).
