7 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The average running cost of the VPL-DX122 is only £75 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 5% of all 89 projectors of a comparable type and age.

Sony Has Excellent Data Projector Reviews

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

6 Reasons Against

The dimmest projector brightness of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-DX122 is 100 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 8,000 ANSI lumens.

We compared this data projector to all the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the VPL-DW127[pl_2512334_price], the VPL-DW122[pl_2514842_price], and the VPL-DX127[pl_2514843_price] all from Sony is also worth considering.

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