6 Reasons For

Just Six Months Old

This Sony data projector is one of the most recent projectors to be released. This means it is likely to use better technology than some of the older projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-DX102, including the VPL-DX102, have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think a higher scoring product such as the Vivitek D871ST are also worth considering.

7 Reasons Against

Most of the comparable spec projectors that are less than a year old, including the Sony VPL-DX102, do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Sony VPL-DX102 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec projectors that are less than a year old also do not support Full HD projection.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Latest comparable spec projectors have projector brightnesses of between 110 ANSI lumens and 85,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,900 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to also look at the Benq W1350 (2500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the DELL 1220 Projector ($242.99) (2700 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Epson EB-525W (2800 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

2 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-DX102

Sony Has OK Multimedia Projector Reviews

We checked the expert and user reviews of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each data projector brand. On average projectors from Sony have ok reviews from owners and experts.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the VPL-DX102 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) and we think a higher scoring projector such as the Hitachi ED-X20 ($142.57), and the Acer X122 are also worth considering.

If the resolution of this projector is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the Acer S1383 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), the Vivitek Qumi Q4 ($412.60) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the DELL S510 ($1,021.99) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
