Why Has it Scored 34?

Sony projectors have excellent reviews in general.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better data projectors are available. View the latest projectors 2017.
This projector has running costs of £72 over 5 years, which puts it typical compared to the other 1,858 projectors that we have compared it to. View all energy saving multimedia projectors.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
1280 x 768 resolution
Has a built-in speaker
3LCD - A sophisticated, innovative technology that utilises 3 chips to deliver vibrant, true-to-life and consistent images for the most demanding audiences
Hybrid filter - the hybrid filter lasts longer than conventional filters. this extension in maintenance intervals reduces the overall cost of ownership significantly
PC-less presentations - simply plug in a memory stick, SD card, or even a portable hard disk drive and present without the need of a laptop
Advanced networking - manage and control multiple projectors over LAN. turn the projector on and off, schedule email alerts and monitor projectors all via the network
AMX device discovery - when integrated with an AMX controller, the relevant communication modules and drivers are downloaded to the projector automatically
HDMI - get the highest quality image by connecting the latest in a/v equipment to the projector with HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface)
Daytime mode - it can be harder to see a projected picture when the sun is shining brightly. projections are always vivid and colourful in a bright environment with daytime mode
My button - assign custom functions or common tasks to a programmable button on your remote control
Vertical keystone correction - correct misaligned images automatically with vertical keystone correction
Very low contrast ratio (typical)
Dimmer than average projector brightness
