4 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Data Projectors

On average projectors from Sony are rated 89%, which is in the top 10% of all projector brands that we have looked at.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-SX226 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-SX226 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Sony VPL-SX236 ($829.95) is also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Sony VPL-SX631 ($1,132.17).
