6 Reasons For

On average Sony data projectors are rated 89 out of 100, which is in the top 16% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Only Released Four Months Ago

As one of the newer projectors, this projector is likely to use better technology.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched in the last 12 months, the VPL-DX240 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Optoma HD142X[plb_3807775_price], or the Sony VPL-EW235[plb_3703631_price] which has better reviews; or the Sony VPL-DW240[plb_3760760_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Optoma HD142X[plb_3807775_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-DX240 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-DX240 also do not support WiFi connectivity.
