3 Reasons For

Sony Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Just Released Six Months Ago

The VPL-GTZ280 was only relased by Sony six months ago.

DCI 4K (4096 X 2160) Native Projector Resolution

1 Other reason to consider the Sony VPL-GTZ280

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 30 decibels, the VPL-GTZ280 has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other latest data projectors.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 30dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer P6500[plb_3285112_price].

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Acer P1285 TCO[plb_3421463_price] (30dB).
