7 Reasons For

Good Brand

2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors built by Sony have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all data projectors (not just 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that Sony also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-DX146 supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-DX146 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-DX146.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Ricoh PJ WX4130, the Vivitek Qumi Q2, and the Sony VPL-DX140 is also worth considering.

UXGA (1600 X 1200) Native Projector Resolution

The VPL-DX146 has a maximum resolution of UXGA (1600 x 1200). That's 88% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-DX146 the worst resolution is VGA (640x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The VPL-DX146 is one of the narrower projectors that were launched more than two years ago (only 315 millimeters) amongst 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The average width of 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 370mm.

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Sony VPL-DX146 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might want to look at including the Sony VPL-DW125 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most similar spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-DX146 do not support 3D image projection. The VPL-DX146 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q2 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
