7 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Data projectors manufactured by Sony generally have good ratings.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-EX295 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EX295 also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-EX295 range from 75 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens. The Sony VPL-EX295 has a quite bright projector brightness (3,800 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Christie DHD600-G[plb_3022336_price] (5,950 ANSI lumens).

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Sony VPL-EX295 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-EX295 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 10,000 hours, the VPL-EX295 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-EX295. The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-EX295 is 2,000h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,200h.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The Sony VPL-EX295 has a quite high RMS rated power (16 Watts) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-EX295. The average RMS rated power of data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 8W.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Colour Light Output

When compared to other projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-EX295 that we have checked, the colour light output of the Sony VPL-EX295 of 3,800 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-EX295 the colour light outputs range from 1,800 ANSI lumens to 3,800 ANSI lumens.

6 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-EX295 do not support 3D image projection. The Sony VPL-EX295 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Benq SX914[plb_1999632_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-EX295 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the Panasonic PT-FX400U[plb_1816819_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-EX295 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-EX295 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Gigabyte BRIX Projector[plb_2116585_price], or the Epson EH-TW6600[plb_2495277_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Reviewed 11 October 2015 by Dr. Sound
Dr. Sound would recommend the Sony VPL-EX295 (Verified Purchase)

A good basic presentation projector. Sony went cheap on the lens cover. It doesn't even snap onto the lens. You must tape it on...
