7 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Projector Reviews

On average projectors from Sony are rated 89%, which is in the top 16% of all projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Just Released Four Months Ago

The VPL-DX270 was only relased by Sony four months ago. Newer data projectors like this one are likely to have better features.

Recent Price Drop of £65.00

In the last fortnight the VPL-DX270 has dropped in price by £65.00.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-DX270 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched in the last 12 months also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Pico Genie M400 Pro[plb_3288158_price], the LG PH450UG[plb_3843261_price], or the Philips PPX3417W[plb_3347906_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Sony VPL-DX270 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's 9% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+). The resolution of all multimedia projectors that came out in the last year ranges from 640 x 350 to 3840 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness

When compared to other recently released battery powered projectors that we have assessed the projector brightness of, the VPL-DX270's projector brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. Battery powered projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-DX270 have projector brightness of between 65 ANSI lumens and 3,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 790 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Sony VPL-DX270 has more HDMI ports than most of the battery powered projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-DX270. Most of the recently released battery powered projectors only have one HDMI port, however this multimedia projector has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other battery powered projectors that have been available for the last year, the VPL-DX270 does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other battery powered projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-DX270, the VPL-DX270 does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might also want to look at including the Pico Genie M400 Pro[plb_3288158_price], or the LG PH450UG[plb_3843261_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-DX270, the VPL-DX270 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Pico Genie M400 Pro[plb_3288158_price], or the Philips PPX3417W[plb_3347906_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

The cheapeast multimedia projectors that came out in the last year that we found costs £199 and the most expensive costs £526. We think that this multimedia projector looks expensive for a similar spec projector that has been around for the last year.

At only 3,000 hours, the Sony VPL-DX270 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other battery powered projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-DX270.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit
