4 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-EX250

Sony Multimedia Projectors Have OK Reviews

Sony is one of the ok multimedia projector manufacturers according to average owner and expert review score data that we have collected for all data projectors.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-EX250 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for the last year.

We compared this projector to all the other 3300 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think a higher scoring product such as the Christie DS+300W are also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to also look at the EB-536Wi (£752.89) (3400 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the EB-535W (£578.38) (3400 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Epson or the Acer H6520BD (3500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

The VPL-EX250 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 900. That's 38% less resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

If the resolution of this projector is not high enough for you then you might want to also look at the UM361 (£978.95) (720 x 480,720 x 576,832 x 624,1152 x 870,1280 x 960,1600 x 900,1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated),1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated),1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated),1280 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated),1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated),1360 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated),1366 х 768,1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated),1440 x 900 (WXGA+ and higher rated),1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated),1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+ and higher rated),1920 x 1080 (HD 108 and higher rated), or the [pl_2556069] (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated) both from NEC or the Viewsonic PLED-W600 (£390.33) (1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+ and higher rated) and higher rated).

The VPL-EX250 has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) including a higher rated projector such as the X122 (£402.37), or the X123 both from Acer.

If the resolution of this data projector is too low for you then you might want to also look at the Acer S1383 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), the Vivitek Qumi Q4 (£237.90) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the DELL S510 (£699.99) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
