10 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D
Most multimedia projectors that have been available for the last year do not support 3D. The Sony VPL-DX270 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.
Alternative data projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to look at include the Pico Genie M400 Pro[plb_3288158_price]; or the LG PH450UG[plb_3843261_price].
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
The Sony VPL-DX270 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released in the last year also do not support wi-Fi.
We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Pico Genie M400 Pro[plb_3288158_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
Does Not Support Full HD
The VPL-DX270 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other battery powered projectors that were launched in the last year also do not support full HD.
Very Low RMS Rated Power
The lowest RMS rated power of battery powered projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the VPL-DX270 is 1W and the highest is 20W. With an RMS rated power of only 1 Watt, the VPL-DX270 has one of the lower RMS rated powers amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.
+7 More reasons against
Very Short Service Life of Lamp
The VPL-DX270 has one of the shorter service life of lamps (only 3,000 hours) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The service life of lamps of projectors that came out in the last 12 months range from 3,000h to 30,000h.
Very Low Vertical Synchronization (max)
With a vertical synchronization (max) of only 0.092 kilohertz, the VPL-DX270 has one of the lower vertical synchronization (max)s amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The vertical synchronization (max)s of comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months range from 0.092kHz to 120kHz, and the average vertical synchronization (max) is 52kHz.
At 2.7 kilograms, the Sony VPL-DX270 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other battery powered projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-DX270. The weights of recently released battery powered projectors range from 130g to 3.6kg, and the average weight is 1.1kg.
Only One Number of Built-In Speakers
The VPL-DX270 is a one number of built-in speakers projector.
Very Loud Noise Level
When compared to other recently released battery powered projectors that we have checked, the noise level of the VPL-DX270 of 41 decibels is one of the loudest. The average noise level of latest similar spec data projectors is 32dB, and the noise levels range from 29dB to 41dB.
Very Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)
New multimedia projectors have noise level (economic mode)s of between 28dB and 35dB. When compared to other battery powered projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-DX270 that we have checked the noise level (economic mode) of, the Sony VPL-DX270's noise level (economic mode) of 35 decibels is one of the loudest.
