Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Multimedia projectors produced by Sony are some of the better multimedia projectors according to average expert and user reviews.

Good Product Quality

One Sony VPL-DW127 owner said in their reviews that this projector was good quality.

Easy to Use

One Sony VPL-DW127 reviewer considered that the Sony VPL-DW127 was easy to use. In October this year Paul rated the product 5 stars and he mentioned “Great presentation aid, easy to use and high quality projection”.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-DW127 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the NEC M311.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the NEC VE281 is also worth considering.
