With a matrix size of 0.63 inches, the VPL-SX225 has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SX225. The matrix sizes of data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SX225 range from 0.55" to 0.75", and the average matrix size is 0.61".

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Sony VPL-SX225 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support 3D image projection.

Other projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider include the NEC NP-M311W which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-SX225 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support WiFi connectivity. The VPL-SX225 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to look at include the NEC NP-UM330 ($936.16) which is also higher rated.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-SX225 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The projector brightness of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-SX225 range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Epson VS220 which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Sony VPL-SW235 ($969.95) (3,000 ANSI lumens), the Promethean UST-P1 (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-CW300WN (3,100 ANSI lumens).

The dimmest brightness in economy mode of comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-SX225 is 1,500 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 4,400 ANSI lumens.
