5 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Sony has excellent average reviews for its 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other brands.

Running Costs Are Low

The VPL-DX100 has an average running cost of only £88 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 17% of all 43 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type, the Sony VPL-DX100 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-DX100 do not support full HD. The Sony VPL-DX100 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price] which also has a higher rating.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support 3D which you might want to look at including the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The VPL-DX100 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,300 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-DX100 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-DX100. Across all the 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-DX100 the projector brightnesss range from 500 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens.
