4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the Sony VPL-DX140 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Sony VPL-DW125 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
