5 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Projector Reviews

Projectors produced by Sony are some of the better projectors according to average reviews from experts and owners.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-CX236 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-CX236.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper data projector such as the Benq SU917[plb_2750780_price] or you might consider a better rated data projector such as the Optoma GT5000[plb_3141494_price], or the NEC M353WS[plb_3119768_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the VPL-CX236 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). This data projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA). Across all multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 4096 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Sony VPL-CX236 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-CX236 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The average noise level in economy mode of data projectors of this type and age is 32dB. At only 29 decibels, the VPL-CX236 has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on projectors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-CX236 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Benq SU917[plb_2750780_price]; or the HD161X[pl_3806358_price], or the GT5000[pl_3141494_price] both from Optoma are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-CX236 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of this age and type do support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq SU917[plb_2750780_price] or the HD161X[pl_3806358_price], or the GT5000[pl_3141494_price] both from Optoma.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that were released more than a year ago do not support WiFi connectivity. The VPL-CX236 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

The dimmest brightness in economy mode of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the VPL-CX236 is 1,900 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 15,000 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 4,200 ANSI lumens. At only 2,200 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-CX236 has a quite dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-CX236.
