Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-DX140 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Very Bright Lamp Power (economic Mode)

The lamp power (economic mode)s of projectors of this type and age range from 170W to 7,000W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 2,600W.

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.5 kilograms, the VPL-DX140 is one of the lighter projectors of this age and spec amongst 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the data projectors that were released more than two years ago the weights range from 470g to 47kg.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most projectors of this age and spec do not support full HD. The VPL-DX140 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Sony VPL-DW125 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q2 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
