7 Reasons For

Sony Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked 249 expert and owner reviews for Sony projectors and found that on average Sony has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Sony has good ratings specifically for its 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPLDW120, the VPLDW120 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think cheaper data projectors such as the DELL 7700[plb_1406488_price], and the Sony VPL-DX126[plb_1618830_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Sony VPL-DW120[plb_1421385_price].

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Across all the data projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPLDW120 the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 2,000h to 8,000h. When compared to other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPLDW120 that we have checked the service life of lamp in economic mode of, the VPLDW120's service life of lamp in economic mode of 7,000 hours is one of the longest.
