5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Sony has good average ratings for its 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the VPLDX120, the VPLDX120 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 7,000 hours, the VPLDX120 has one of the longer service life of lamp in economic mode amongst 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. Data projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPLDX120 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,000h and 8,000h.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPLDX120 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPLDX120 also do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might also want to consider including the Sony VPL-DW125 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Sony VPLDX120 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPLDX120 also do not support 3D image projection.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Vivitek Qumi Q2 (£307.20) which also has a higher rating.
