6 Reasons For

Sony Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

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 projectors of a comparable age and spec to the VPLDX140, the Sony VPLDX140 has a built-in speaker.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to consider include the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price] which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This data projector supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most frequently supported graphics resolution on data projectors of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Big Optical Zoom

Across all the projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPLDX140 the optical zooms range from 1x to 1.3x, and the average optical zoom is 1.2x. With an optical zoom of 1.3 times zoom factor, the Sony VPLDX140 has one of the biggest optical zooms amongst 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Colour Light Output

The average colour light output of data projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPLDX140 is 3,500 ANSI lumens. The VPLDX140 has one of the brighter colour light outputs (3,200 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPLDX140 range from 470g to 47kg, and the average weight is 7.3kg. At only 2.5 kilograms, the VPLDX140 is fairly light compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPLDX140 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the VPLDX140 also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Sony VPL-DW125[plb_1443008_price].

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection. The VPLDX140 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Sony VPLDX140 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPLDX140 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 210 Watts, the VPLDX140 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. Across all the 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPLDX140 the lamp power range from 190W to 400W.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The VPLDX140 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

4 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPLDX140

Average Running Costs

The average 1 year running cost of the VPLDX140 is £95 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 41 multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Released Over Four Years Ago

This data projector has been on the market for over four years.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the VPLDX140 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPLDX140.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think the Sony VPL-DX140[plb_1437607_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the VPL-CH355[pl_2577208_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-CH350[pl_2751969_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens) both from Sony.
