7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Sony is one of the better rated projector brands according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all data projectors.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-EW226 supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-EW226 do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support WiFi connectivity and we think the DELL S500[plb_1538835_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Sony VPL-EW226 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPL-EW226 also do not support 3D image projection.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-EW226 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the VPL-EW226.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the WX[pl_2435670_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the S-300[pl_2435674_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) both from Canon which also has a higher rating.
