5 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average data projectors from Sony are rated 89 out of 100, which is in the top 16% of all data projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-EX226 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-EX226.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think cheaper projectors such as the Hitachi CP-CX300WN[plb_2172494_price] is also worth considering.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Sony VPL-EX225[plb_1457663_price], or the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness
