8 Reasons For

Sony Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

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

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the VPL-DX147 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think a cheaper projector such as the Sony VPL-DX127[plb_2514843_price] or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price], and the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price] are also worth considering.
