Data projectors produced by Sony are some of the better data projectors according to average reviews from users and experts.
100 - 240V AC Input Voltage
This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors that were launched around the same time as it.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-EX275, the Sony VPL-EX275 has a built-in speaker.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
This multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most frequently supported graphics resolution on data projectors of a comparable type and age to it.
Fairly Big Matrix Size
Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.75", and the average matrix size is 0.61". At 0.63 inches, the VPL-EX275 has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.
Very Big Digital Zoom
The smallest digital zoom of projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-EX275 is 1.3x and the biggest is 4x. When compared to other data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EX275, the digital zoom of the VPL-EX275 of 4 times zoom factor is one of the biggest.
+3 More reasons for
Fairly High RMS Rated Power
The VPL-EX275 has one of the higher RMS rated power (16 Watts) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-EX275 the RMS rated power range from 0.5W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W.
Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave
Projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-EX275 have power consumption during PowerSave of between 0.1W and 300W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 150W. With a power consumption during PowerSave of only 0.1 Watts, the VPL-EX275 has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.
3 Reasons Against
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Most 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support WiFi connectivity. The Sony VPL-EX275 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The VPL-EX275 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-EX275 also do not support Full HD projection.
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The VPL-EX275 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EX275 also do not support 3D image projection.
