Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago, the VPL-CX275 does not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-CX275 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider including the Epson V11H475020 which has better reviews.
