3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-EX245 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPL-EX245 also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC NP-M311W.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the VPL-EX245, the Sony VPL-EX245 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson 475Wi ($2,102.34), or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider including the NEC NP-UM330 ($1,640.31).
