Sony Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

We checked 502 owner and expert reviews for Sony projectors and found that on average Sony has excellent reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Sony has excellent reviews specifically within its 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors range.

Poor Expert Reviews

Multimedia projector expert review website scored this multimedia projector 60 out of 100. This means that experts really don't rate this projector very highly.


Acceptable Noise Level

One owner mentioned in their reviews that the product was quiet. Andrew Dixon mentioned “I am very pleased with my Sony projector which is very bright and fairly quiet” in his review of the Sony VPL-DX120.


Good Product Quality

One customer who reviewed the Sony VPL-DX120 said that it was good quality. Mr Andy Coombes gave it a score of 7 stars and he said on Amazon “Good quality, great image” in his review of this projector.


Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-DX120 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130, the LG PB62G, and the Sony VPL-DW120 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-DX120 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to this projector also do not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which also support full HD which you might want to consider including the Christie DS+300W, the LG PB62G, or the Panasonic PT-DW740ELS which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesses of data projectors of this age and type range from 500 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-DX120 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this data projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the VPL-DW120, the VPL-DW125, or the VPL-DX125 all from Sony which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the CVWU-31B ($6,800) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the CVHD-31B ($3,653.20) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Barco or the Vivitek D795WT (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
