4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the Sony VPL-SX225 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-SX225 do not support Full HD projection. The Sony VPL-SX225 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the VPL-SX225 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the NEC NP-UM330[plb_1528333_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

4 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-SX225

Average Running Costs

The VPL-SX225 is typical compared to the other 92 multimedia projectors of a similar age and type that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the VPL-SX225 is £117.

Released Over Two Years Ago

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The VPL-SX225 has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,700 ANSI lumens, the VPL-SX225 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-SX225.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the NEC NP-M271X[plb_1525269_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Sony VPL-SW235[plb_2284441_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), the Promethean UST-P1[plb_2713404_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-CW300WN[plb_2411979_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).
