9 Reasons For

Sony Multimedia Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Data projectors produced by Sony generally have excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-SX225 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Epson EB-425W which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 720 (HD 720)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA), which is the most frequently supported supported graphics resolutions on data projectors of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Matrix Size

The VPL-SX225 has one of the bigger matrix sizes (0.63 inches) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The matrix sizes of projectors of this type and age range from 0.55" to 0.75".

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The Sony VPL-SX225 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-SX225. This Sony projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector compared to most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-SX225 range from 230h to 20,000h. With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10,000 hours, the Sony VPL-SX225 has a very long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-SX225.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

At 6,000 hours, the VPL-SX225 has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years. The shortest service life of lamp of comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,400h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is typical of many data projectors that are a similar age to it.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other projectors of this age and type, the VPL-SX225 does not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D including the NEC NP-M311W which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Sony VPL-SX225 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-SX225 also do not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which also support full HD which you might want to look at including the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The VPL-SX225 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the EB-425W, or the BrightLink 436Wi ($1,861.72) both from Epson which also has a higher rating.

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

With a projector brightness (economic mode) of only 1,600 ANSI lumen, the VPL-SX225 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (economic mode)s amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The projector brightness (economic mode)s of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-SX225 range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 4,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Bulb Power

The average bulb power of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago is 240W, and the bulb powers range from 140W to 400W. With a bulb power of only 210 Watts, the VPL-SX225 has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-SX225.

3 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-SX225

Released Over Three Years Ago

This multimedia projector has been on the market for over three years.

XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the VPL-SX225 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-SX225 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-SX225.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M271X.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Promethean UST-P1 (3,000 ANSI lumens), the Sony VPL-SW235 ($969.95) (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-CW300WN (3,100 ANSI lumens).
