6 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Sony has good average ratings for its 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the VPL-DX126 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Hitachi CP-DX300[plb_1858982_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Sony VPL-DW120[plb_1421385_price] is also worth considering.
