10 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Data Projectors

On average projectors from Sony are rated 89 out of 100, which is in the top 10% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Good Product Quality

One Sony VPL-DW127 owner said in their reviews that this projector was good quality.

Easy to Use

One Sony VPL-DW127 reviewer considered that the Sony VPL-DW127 was easy to use. In October this year Paul rated the product 5 stars and he mentioned “Great presentation aid, easy to use and high quality projection”.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-DW127 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-DW127.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC M311[plb_1475527_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price].
