Running Costs Are Average

The VDL-DX120 has an average 1 year running cost of £95 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 27 multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec.

Sony Has OK Multimedia Projector Reviews

We looked at average ratings for each data projector manufacturer and found that whilst Sony has ok reviews across all projectors, Sony has unexceptional reviews specifically for its 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Over Two Years Old

This data projector was released over two years ago.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Sony VDL-DX120 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker including a higher rated product such as the Sony VPL-DX100, or the Vivitek D795WT (£887.99).

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the multimedia projectors of this age and spec do not support 3D image projection, including the Sony VDL-DX120.

There are a number of different projectors with a 3D image projection that you might want to consider including the LG PB62G, or the Infocus IN8601 (£780).

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support Full HD projection, including the Sony VDL-DX120.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors with a Full HD projection including the LG PB62G, the Sony VPL-DW125, or the Infocus IN8601 (£780).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VDL-DX120, the VDL-DX120 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Sony VPLSW536M are also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to it.

We think you might also be interested in different projectors that support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) including the Sony VPLDX120 which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

Projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth considering include the VPLSW536M (1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated),1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated) and higher rated), the VPLDW120 (1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated) and higher rated), or the VPL-SW526C (1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated),1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated) and higher rated) all from Sony.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is typical of many projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) to this projector and we think a higher Kagoo Rating™ data projector such as the Vivitek D791ST (£799), the Hitachi CP-DX300 (£332.99), and the Sony VPLDX120 are also worth considering.

If the resolution of this data projector is too low for you then you might want to also look at the Panasonic PT-DW740ELS (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), the Vivitek D795WT (£887.99) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Sony VPLDW120 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VDL-DX120 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the VDL-DX120.

Different 2600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors that you might want to also look at include a better rated product such as the VPL-DX125, the VPL-DW125, or the VPL-DW120 all from Sony.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth also looking at include the D791ST (£799) (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the D795WT (£887.99) (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Vivitek or the Hitachi CP-DX300 (£332.99) (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
