7 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Data Projector Reviews

We checked 247 expert and owner reviews for Sony projectors and found that on average Sony has excellent reviews. We also found that Sony has excellent reviews specifically for its 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPLDW120 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price] is also worth considering.
