Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Sony is one of the leading multimedia projector manufacturers according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors. 100% of those that bought a Sony multimedia projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Energy

Very Low Running Costs

The VPL-DW127 has an average 1 year running cost of only £76 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the most economic to run similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Released Over Two Years Ago

Sony released the VPL-DW127 in August 2014.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-DW127 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think because of its better review score, the NEC M311X (£518.60) is also worth considering.
