6 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Data projectors produced by Sony generally have excellent reviews compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-DX122 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including a cheaper projector such as the NEC M271[plb_1475530_price] or you might consider a better rated projector such as the VPL-DW122[pl_2514842_price], or the VPL-DX142[pl_2446393_price] both from Sony.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The VPL-DX122 does not support 3D. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPL-DX122 also do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most projectors of this age and type do not support full HD. The VPL-DX122 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors of this age and type do not support wi-Fi. The VPL-DX122 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-DX122 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age. The average projector brightness of comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the VPL-DW127[pl_2512334_price], the VPL-DW122[pl_2514842_price], or the VPL-DX127[pl_2514843_price] all from Sony which has better reviews.

If this 3000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Sony VPL-DX147[plb_2516968_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
