7 Reasons For

Sony Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Projectors built by Sony are some of the best projectors according to average reviews from experts and users.

Supports Wi-Fi

The VPL-EW226 supports wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-EW226 do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which support wi-Fi to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL S500 is also worth considering.

The smallest digital zoom of 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-EW226 is 2x and the biggest is 4x.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Sony VPL-EW226 does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not support 3D.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D and we think the DELL S500 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Across all the projectors of a comparable age and spec to the VPL-EW226 the projector brightnesss range from 1,800 ANSI lumens to 3,200 ANSI lumens.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the WX (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the S-300 (3,000 ANSI lumens) both from Canon which also has a higher rating.
