The VPL-DW120 is in the cheapest 14% of all 43 projectors of this age and type that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the VPL-DW120 will cost only £88 over 1 year to run.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-DW120, the VPL-DW120 has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price].
