7 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

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

Supports Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year, the Sony VPL-EX345 supports Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson EH-TW5350[plb_3024662_price] is also worth considering.

Alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to consider include the Benq MX726[plb_2750781_price].
