Reviews

Excellent Brand

Projectors manufactured by Sony generally have excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers. 100% of those that bought a Sony data projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-CW256 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq MX711 which is cheaper; or the LG PF1500 ($849.00) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Sony VPL-CX236 ($1,249.95).
