4 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We checked 249 user and expert reviews for Sony data projectors and found that on average Sony has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Sony has good ratings specifically within its 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-DW126 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the VPLDW120 ($671.16), or the VPL-DW120 both from Sony.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Sony VPLDX120 is also worth considering.
