5 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

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

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and spec, the Sony VPL-EX226 has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Epson EB-425W[plb_1844228_price] which has better reviews.

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-EX226 is 4,400h, and the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h. When compared to other data projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-EX226 that we have assessed, the Sony VPL-EX226's service life of lamp of 7,000 hours is one of the longest.

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.5 kilograms, the Sony VPL-EX226 is quite light compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago. The lightest projector of a similar age and spec to the VPL-EX226 is 230g heavy and the heaviest is 30kg.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Sony VPL-EX226 does not support 3D. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Sony VPL-EX226 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors of this age and type also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-EX226, the VPL-EX226 does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the EB-425W[pl_1844228_price], or the BrightLink 436Wi[pl_1875520_price] both from Epson which also has a higher rating.

The projector brightness (economic mode)s of data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EX226 range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 4,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,700 ANSI lumens, the VPL-EX226 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EX226.

We compared this data projector to all the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M271X[plb_1525269_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Epson V11H475020[plb_2123586_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
