The VPL-DX147 is one of the cheapest to run projectors of this age and type that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the VPL-DX147 is only £75.

Good Brand

We checked the reviews from owners and experts of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each multimedia projector brand. On average multimedia projectors from Sony have good reviews from users and experts.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years, the Sony VPL-DX147 has a built-in speaker.

Alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the VE281[pl_1473677_price], or the M311[pl_1475527_price] both from NEC or the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price].

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

7 Reasons Against

Price Has Increased by £109.96

In the last 55 days the VPL-DX147 has increased in price by £109.96.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support 3D image projection. The VPL-DX147 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-DX147 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-DX147 also do 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 CP-CX300WN[pl_2172494_price], or the CP-CW300WN[pl_2411979_price] both from Hitachi is also worth considering.

The average RMS rated power of projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPL-DX147 is 11W, and the RMS rated power range from 0.5W to 20W. The VPL-DX147 has a fairly low RMS rated power (only 1 Watt) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-DX147.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago the noise levels range from 26dB to 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.
