7 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

On average projectors produced by Sony are rated 89 out of 100, which is in the top 16% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Supports Full HD Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year, the Sony VPL-EX345 supports Full HD projection.

Other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the NEC M353WS ($1,322.08), the LG PF1000U ($790.99), or the Optoma GT5000.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-EX345 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-EX345 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the NEC M353WS ($1,322.08), and the LG PF1000U ($790.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the Canon LV-WX300USTi is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The VPL-EX345 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year. Across all similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EX345 the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 4096 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Sony VPL-EX345 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-EX345. This data projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector compared to most of the similar spec data projectors that were released one year ago which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 10,000 hours, the VPL-EX345 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. The average service life of lamp in economic mode of multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-EX345 is 9,500h.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EX345 the noise levels range from 22dB to 45dB. The VPL-EX345 has a quite quiet noise level (only 29 decibels) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 29dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Sony VPL-EW315 ($1,069.99).

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the VPL-EW345 ($1,189.95) (29dB), or the VPL-EW348 (29dB) both from Sony.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
