6 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Sony is one of the best projector brands according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Just Released Six Months Ago

This multimedia projector was released just six months ago, so it is likely to have more advanced features than some of the older data projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-DX240, the VPL-DX240 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Sony VPL-DX220 ($454.91) which is cheaper; or the Optoma HD142X ($539.00), and the Sony VPL-EW235 ($999.00) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

The VPL-DX240 does not support 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other new similar spec projectors also do not support 3D.
