4 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Projectors from Sony have an average rating of 89 out of 100, which is in the top 10% of all projector brands that we have looked at.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-CX236 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-CX236.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the LG PF1000U[plb_3372417_price] which has better reviews; or the Canon LV-WX300USTi[plb_3022433_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
