Poor Expert Reviews

Multimedia projector expert review site scored this Sony data projector 60 out of 100. Multimedia projector experts don't rate this data projector very highly.

Sony Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Projectors manufactured by Sony generally have excellent ratings. 100% of those that bought a Sony projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Released Over Four Years Ago

Sony released the VPL-EX241 in October 2012.


Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-EX241 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this multimedia projector also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the Benq SH960 ($3,239), the Epson 475Wi ($2,102.34), or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A are also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-EX241 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to this projector.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the TW695 ($650) (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the TX615 (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Optoma or the NEC UM330Xi (3,300 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
