7 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Multimedia projectors manufactured by Sony generally have good reviews compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-SX226 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-SX226 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Sony VPL-SX236[plb_3301501_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit
