5 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Projector Reviews

Sony is one of the best projector manufacturers according to average owner and expert review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-CX236 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-CX236 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the LG PF1000U ($1,049.99) which has better reviews; or the Canon LV-WX300USTi which is cheaper are also worth considering.
