9 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The VPL-DW122 is in the cheapest 6% of all 92 data projectors of a comparable age and type that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the VPL-DW122 is only £75.

Good Brand

Data projectors built by Sony are some of the better data projectors according to average reviews from owners and experts.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and spec, the VPL-DW122 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the VPL-DX142[pl_2446393_price], or the VPL-DX127[pl_2514843_price] both from Sony which is cheaper; or the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price] which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most projectors of this age and spec do not support 3D image projection. The VPL-DW122 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-DW122 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPL-DW122 also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 3,500 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens. The VPL-DW122 has a quite dim projector brightness (only 2,600 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this projector to all the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think a cheaper projector such as the Sony VPL-DX127[plb_2514843_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price] are also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Sony VPL-DX147[plb_2516968_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens).
