8 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Projector Reviews

Data projectors produced by Sony generally have excellent ratings compared to other brands.

Supports Full HD

The VPL-EX345 supports full HD, as do most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-EX345.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Epson EH-TW5350, the Sony VPL-EX315, or the Benq MX726 ($899.99) is also worth considering.
