7 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Projector Reviews

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each projector brand. On average projectors from Sony have excellent reviews from owners and experts.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-DX127 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the NEC VE281, or the Sony VPL-DW127 ($779.95) which has better reviews.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Sony VPL-DX147 ($725.00) is also worth considering.

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

Across all the data projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-DX127 the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 230h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,700h. With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10,000 hours, the VPL-DX127 has one of the longer service life of lamp (economic mode)s amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

At 5,000 hours, the VPL-DX127 has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-DX127. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have service life of lamps of between 1,500h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,400h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data rates on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Light

The weights of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-DX127 range from 230g to 30kg. The Sony VPL-DX127 is one of the lighter projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-DX127 (only 2.6 kilograms) amongst projectors of this age.

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The VPL-DX127 does not support 3D. Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-DX127 also do not support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this data projector and we think the Infocus IN3126 is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-DX127 do not support full HD. The Sony VPL-DX127 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider including the Hitachi CP-CX300WN.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The VPL-DX127 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and spec the projector brightnesss range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-DX127 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-DX127.

There are a number of alternative 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available which you might also want to look at including the Sony VPL-DW127 ($779.95) which has better reviews; or the Sony VPL-DW122 ($499.94) which is cheaper.

If this Sony data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Sony VPL-DX147 ($725.00) (3,200 ANSI lumens).

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated powers of similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years range from 0.5W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W. At only 1 Watt, the VPL-DX127 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the VPL-DX127.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Colour Light Output

The VPL-DX127 has a fairly dim colour light output (only 2,600 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-DX127. The colour light outputs of projectors of this spec and age range from 2,500 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Bulb Power

With a bulb power of only 210 Watts, the VPL-DX127 has a fairly small bulb power compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. Similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-DX127 have bulb powers of between 140W and 400W.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The VPL-DX127 is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The VPL-DX127 has one of the louder noise levels (38 decibels) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average noise level of projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-DX127 is 35dB.

We compared all the other 38dB noise level multimedia projectors to this multimedia projector and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Sony VPL-DW122 ($499.94) or you might consider a higher rated data projector such as the Sony VPL-DW127 ($779.95) are also worth considering.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Sony VPL-DX147 ($725.00) (38dB).

Quite Low Vertical Synchronization (max)

The VPL-DX127 has a fairly low vertical synchronization (max) (only 92 kilohertz) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age. The average vertical synchronization (max) of comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-DX127 is 100kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The quietest noise level (economic mode) of multimedia projectors of this type and age is 26dB and the loudest is 35dB. When compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-DX127, the Sony VPL-DX127's noise level (economic mode) of 35 decibels is one of the loudest.
