Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-DX102, including the VPL-DX102, have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think a higher scoring product such as the Vivitek D871ST are also worth considering.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Latest comparable spec projectors have projector brightnesses of between 110 ANSI lumens and 85,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,900 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,300 ANSI lumens, the VPL-DX102 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other latest projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-DX102.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to also look at the Benq W1350 (£1,059.99) (2500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the DELL 1220 (£312.71) (2700 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Epson EB-525W (£626.69) (2800 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the VPL-DX102 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) and we think a higher scoring projector such as the Hitachi ED-X20, and the Acer X122 (£417.76) are also worth considering.

If the resolution of this projector is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the Acer S1383 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), the Vivitek Qumi Q4 (£346.80) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the DELL S510 (£499.99) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
