6 Reasons For

Sony Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Only Released Four Months Ago

Sony only released the VPL-DX240 four months ago. Newer data projectors like this one are likely to use better technology.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other recently released comparable spec projectors, the VPL-DX240 has a built-in speaker.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider include the Sony VPL-EW235, or the DELL M900HD which has better reviews.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Sony VPL-DW240 is also worth considering.
