7 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the VPL-EX225, the VPL-EX225 has a built-in speaker.

Other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Hitachi CP-CX300WN[plb_2172494_price].

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the Sony VPL-EX226[plb_1560910_price], or the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price] is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h. When compared to other projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPL-EX225 that we have checked, the lamp service life of the VPL-EX225 of 30,000 hours is one of the longest.

Chart Edit

Very Big Digital Zoom

The Sony VPL-EX225 has one of the bigger digital zooms (4 times zoom factor) amongst projectors of this age. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years have digital zooms of between 1.3x and 4x, and the average digital zoom is 2.6x.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

The Sony VPL-EX225 has a fairly low power consumption during PowerSave (only 0.1 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-EX225. The lowest power consumption during PowerSave of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EX225 is 0.1W and the highest is 330W.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-EX225 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of this type and age do not support Full HD projection. The VPL-EX225 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to consider include the Hitachi CP-CX300WN[plb_2172494_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other data projectors of this type and age, the VPL-EX225 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Lamp Power

The VPL-EX225 has a fairly small lamp power (only 210 Watts) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-EX225. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-EX225 the lamp power range from 140W to 400W.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of only 1.3 times zoom factor, the VPL-EX225 has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the VPL-EX225. The average optical zoom of comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1.5x, and the optical zooms range from 1x to 2x.

3 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-EX225

Released Over Four Years Ago

This data projector was released over four years ago.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the VPL-EX225 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,700 ANSI lumens, the VPL-EX225 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

If you are looking for a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Hitachi CP-CX300WN[plb_2172494_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens and cheaper); or the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
