7 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Projectors from Sony have an average rating of 89 out of 100, which is in the top 10% of all multimedia projector brands that we have assessed.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors of this spec and age, the Sony VPL-EX295 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN1110A[plb_1561135_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The VPL-EX295 has one of the brighter projector brightnesss (3,800 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Data projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPL-EX295 have projector brightnesss of between 75 ANSI lumens and 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The Sony VPL-EX295 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. This projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector compared to most of the similar spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-EX295 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

When compared to other data projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-EX295 that we have checked, the VPL-EX295's service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10,000 hours is one of the longest. The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 600h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,600h.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the Sony VPL-EX295 has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-EX295. Comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago have RMS rated powers of between 1W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 7.9W.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Colour Light Output

Across all the projectors of this spec and age the colour light outputs range from 1,800 ANSI lumens to 3,800 ANSI lumens.

4 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The VPL-EX295 does not support 3D. Most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support 3D.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the Infocus IN1110A[plb_1561135_price], or the Optoma HD83[plb_1763299_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-EX295 does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-EX295 also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma HD83[plb_1763299_price], or the Panasonic PT-FX400U[plb_1816819_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-EX295 do not support wi-Fi. The VPL-EX295 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Gigabyte BRIX[plb_2116585_price] which is also higher rated.

Dr. Sound would recommend the Sony VPL-EX295 (Verified Purchase)

A good basic presentation projector. Sony went cheap on the lens cover. It doesn't even snap onto the lens. You must tape it on...
