8 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average Sony projectors have good reviews from experts and owners.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-DX127 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-DX127 also have a built-in speaker.

Other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the VPL-DX142[pl_2446393_price], or the VPL-DW122[pl_2514842_price] both from Sony.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-DX127 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-DX127 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPL-DX127 also do not support Full HD projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-DX127 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of this age and type also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of multimedia projectors of this type and age is 100 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens. At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-DX127 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-DX127.

Other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price].

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