Running Costs Are Low

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the VDL-EW245 will cost £106 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the cheaper to run 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that are older than two years.

OK Brand

Data projectors manufactured by Sony generally have ok ratings compared to other brands.

Over Two Years Old

Sony released the VDL-EW245 over two years ago.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VDL-EW245 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VDL-EW245.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the VPL-EW225, and the VPL-EW245 both from Sony or the DELL S500 (£800.79) which have a better Kagoo Rating™ are also worth considering.
