6 Reasons For

Excellent User Reviews

On average, people who bought this data projector rated it as outstanding. This means that owners think this multimedia projector is one of the very best projectors of a comparable spec and age.

Sony Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Sony data projectors have an average rating of 89 out of 100, which is in the top 16% of all data projector brands that we have analysed.

Good Product Quality

One Sony VPL-EX235 reviewer who reviewed the Sony VPL-EX235 said that it was good quality. Dvrm gave this projector a very good review score and said in their review of the Sony VPL-EX235 a few weeks ago “Good quality display even on day time”.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-EX235 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-EX235.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Optoma S316 which is cheaper; or the Optoma HD141 ($638.95) which has better reviews.

Alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the Optoma H181X ($533.95).

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years range from 1W to 20W. At 16 Watts, the VPL-EX235 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-EX235.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age, the VPL-EX235 does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might want to consider including the Optoma S316 or the Optoma HD141 ($638.95).

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-EX235 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-EX235 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Optoma S316; or the Optoma HD141 ($638.95) are also worth considering.
