6 Reasons For

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to it.

Data projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth considering include the VE281 (£231.40) (720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated), the UM280 (£359.90) (720 x 480,832 x 624,1152 x 870,1280 x 960,1600 x 900,1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated),1152 x 864 (XGA+ and higher rated),1280 x 1024 (SXGA 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 1080 and higher rated),640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated),800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated),720 x 576,1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the M311 (£309.40) (720 x 480,720 x 576,832 x 624,1152 x 870,1280 x 960,1600 x 900,1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated),1280 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated),1280 x 800 (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 1080 and higher rated),640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated),800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated),1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated),1152 x 864 (XGA+ and higher rated), and higher rated) all from NEC.

This multimedia projector supports a 480p video mode, which is the most commonly supported video mode supported by 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-EX271. The video modes "1080i", "1080p", "480i", "576i", "576p" and "720p" are also supported by this projector.

Chart Edit

Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 7,000 hours, the VPL-EX271 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are older than two years. Projectors of this age and spec have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 230h and 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,000h.

Chart Edit

1.6:1 Zoom Ratio

This projector supports a 1.6:1 zoom ratio, which is typical of many projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

100 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This multimedia projector has 10 and 100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rates, which is typical of many comparable spec data projectors that are older than two years.

Chart Edit

A Bit Short

The shortest 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector that was released more than two years ago is 5.2mm tall, the tallest is 510mm, and the average height is 130mm. At only 96.2 millimeters, the Sony VPL-EX271 is fairly short compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-EX271.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-EX271, the VPL-EX271 does not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors with a built-in speaker including the Epson EB-X12, the Optoma DS317, or the Hitachi CP-DW25WN.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-EX271, the Sony VPL-EX271 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider include the BrightLink 436Wi, the EB-430 LW, or the BrightLink Pro 1410Wi all from Epson.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-EX271 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors with a Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the CP-WU8460, or the CP-WX8255A both from Hitachi or the Mitsubishi Electric UD740U are also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPL-EX271, the VPL-EX271 does not support 3D image projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the DW312, or the TW695 both from Optoma or the Mitsubishi Electric UD740U.

5 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-EX271

OK Brand

On average data projectors from Sony are rated 85 out of 100, which is ok compared to the other data projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Running Costs Are Average

The VPL-EX271 is typical compared to the other 67 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years that we have analysed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the VPL-EX271 will cost £145 over 1 year to run.

Over Two Years Old

Sony released the VPL-EX271 over two years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,700 ANSI lumens, the VPL-EX271 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the VPL-EX271.

It is worth considering alternative 3700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors including a higher rated product such as the VPL-EW275, or the VPL-EX275 both from Sony.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Hitachi CPWX4022WN (£820.17) (4000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the Benq SP840 (£1,199.99) (4000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Infocus IN3128 (4000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the VPL-EX271 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

Different data projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) that you might want to also look at include a better rated data projector such as the EB-1935 (£839.83), or the EB-X12 both from Epson or the Optoma EX685.

If the resolution of this Sony data projector is too low for you then you might want to consider the EB-425W (£778.51) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the EB-1400 (£1,522.80) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Epson or the Hitachi CP-DW25WN (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
