7 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Data Projector Reviews

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

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-EX225 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the NEC M311[plb_1475527_price] which has better reviews.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at including the Sony VPL-EX226[plb_1560910_price], or the Hitachi CP-CX300WN[plb_2172494_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

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

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

When compared to other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the VPL-EX225, the lamp service life of the VPL-EX225 of 30,000 hours is one of the longest. The average lamp service life of projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-EX225 is 4,400h.

Chart Edit

Very Big Digital Zoom

The digital zooms of projectors of this age and spec range from 1.3x to 4x, and the average digital zoom is 2.6x. At 4 times zoom factor, the Sony VPL-EX225 has a quite big digital zoom compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPL-EX225.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

With a power consumption during PowerSave of only 0.1 Watts, the VPL-EX225 has a fairly low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-EX225. The average power consumption during PowerSave of multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EX225 is 160W, and the power consumption during PowerSave range from 0.1W to 330W.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the VPL-EX225 does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-EX225 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the CP-CX300WN[pl_2172494_price], or the CP-CW300WN[pl_2411979_price] both from Hitachi is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Sony VPL-EX225 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPL-EX225 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors that came out more than two years ago is 3,500 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-EX225 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-EX225.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Quite Small Lamp Power

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years the lamp power range from 140W to 400W, and the average lamp power is 240W. At only 210 Watts, the Sony VPL-EX225 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-EX225.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Optical Zoom

At only 1.3 times zoom factor, the VPL-EX225 has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for more than two years. The average optical zoom of similar spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-EX225 is 1.5x.
