5 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Sony data projectors and also specifically for Sony 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors and found that in both cases Sony had good ratings compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-DX125 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-DX125.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Ricoh PJ WX4130, the Vivitek Qumi Q2 (£307.20), or the Sony VPL-DX140 which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 768 (WXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

The VPL-DX125 is a two USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Sony VPL-DX125 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-DX125 also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Sony VPL-DW125 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-DX125 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-DX125 also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Vivitek Qumi Q2 (£307.20) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age, the VPL-DX125 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

The dot clock scanning frequencies of similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years range from 1MHz to 230MHz. With a dot clock scanning frequency of only 1 megahertz, the VPL-DX125 has one of the slower dot clock scanning frequencies amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The VPL-DX125 has a quite low RMS rated power (only 1 Watt) compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-DX125. The RMS rated power of 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-DX125 range from 1W to 16W.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

With a brightness in economy mode of only 1,700 ANSI lumen, the VPL-DX125 has a quite dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-DX125. The brightness in economy mode of multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-DX125 range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 5,600 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 2,100 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

At only 0.63 inches, the VPL-DX125 has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-DX125. The matrix sizes of 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the VPL-DX125 range from 0.45" to 1.8", and the average matrix size is 0.7".

4 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-DX125

OK Running Costs

The VPL-DX125 has an average 1 year running cost of £97 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 41 data projectors of a similar spec and age.

Released Over Four Years Ago

This 2500:1 contrast ratio projector was released over four years ago.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is typical of many projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

The VPL-DX125 has a relatively average projector brightness (2,600 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-DX125.

We compared all the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think the Sony VPL-DW125 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Vivitek D795WT (£887.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-DX300 (£332.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
