8 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The VPL-DW122 has an average running cost of only £75 over 1 year based on average energy prices, which is in the cheapest 6% of all 89 projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Sony Has Excellent Multimedia Projector Reviews

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each multimedia projector brand. On average data projectors made by Sony have excellent reviews from experts and users.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-DW122 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-DW122.

Other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to look at include a cheaper data projector such as the Sony VPL-DX142[plb_2446393_price] or you might consider a better rated data projector such as the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price], or the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price].

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-DW122 range from 230h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,700h. At 10,000 hours, the VPL-DW122 has a fairly long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-DW122.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

At 5,000 hours, the Sony VPL-DW122 has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-DW122. The shortest service life of lamp of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-DW122 is 1,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,400h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Projectors of this spec and age have weights of between 230g and 30kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. At only 2.5 kilograms, the VPL-DW122 is quite light compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-DW122.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The VPL-DW122 does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-DW122 also do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-DW122 do not support full HD. The VPL-DW122 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-DW122, the VPL-DW122 does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-DW122 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-DW122. Data projectors that were released more than two years ago have projector brightnesss of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price] is also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Sony VPL-DX147[plb_2516968_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The average projector brightness (economic mode) of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-DW122 is 2,400 ANSI lumens. The VPL-DW122 has a very dim projector brightness (economic mode) (only 1,500 ANSI lumen) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-DW122.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

Multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-DW122 have RMS rated powers of between 0.5W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W. With an RMS rated power of only 1 Watt, the VPL-DW122 has one of the lower RMS rated powers amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Colour Light Output

With a colour light output of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-DW122 has one of the dimmer colour light outputs amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-DW122 have colour light outputs of between 2,500 ANSI lumens and 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Bulb Power

The average bulb power of similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-DW122 is 240W. The VPL-DW122 has a fairly small bulb power (only 210 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPL-DW122.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The VPL-DW122 is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The Sony VPL-DW122 has a quite loud noise level (38 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-DW122 have noise levels of between 26dB and 45dB.

We compared all the other 38dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price] is also worth considering.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the VPL-DX127[pl_2514843_price] (38dB), or the VPL-DX147[pl_2516968_price] (38dB) both from Sony.

At only 92 kilohertz, the Sony VPL-DW122 has a fairly low vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-DW122.
