Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Projectors produced by Sony are some of the best projectors according to average reviews from experts and owners. 100% of those that bought a Sony data projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Energy

Running Costs Are Very Low

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the VPL-DW122 is only £75, which is in the cheapest 6% of all 97 projectors of a comparable type and age.


Other

Released Over Two Years Ago

This projector has been on the market since April 2017.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-DW122 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper multimedia projectors such as the VPL-DX142 (£383.40), or the VPL-DX127 (£380.33) both from Sony.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the NEC M271X (£394.97) is also worth considering.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Data projectors that have been around for more than two years have projector brightnesses of between 100 ANSI lumens and 7,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-DW122 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Sony VPL-DX127 (£380.33) or you might consider a higher scoring data projector such as the Sony VPL-DW127 (£435.88) are also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Sony VPL-DX147 (£452.85) (3,200 ANSI lumens).

We compared this projector to all the other 38dB noise level projectors and we think a cheaper projector such as the Sony VPL-DX127 (£380.33) or you might consider a better rated projector such as the Sony VPL-DW127 (£435.88) are also worth considering.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Sony VPL-DX147 (£452.85) (38dB).
