4 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Projector Reviews

Based on 228 owner and expert reviews, Sony has excellent ratings for its multimedia projectors. Sony also has excellent ratings specifically within its 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors range.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-DX126, the VPL-DX126 has a built-in speaker(s).

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

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

At 7,000 hours, the VPL-DX126 has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The average service life of lamp of 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-DX126 is 4,700h.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-DX126 does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

The VPL-DX126 does not support 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the VPL-DX126 also do not support 3D.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D including the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] which also has a higher rating.

4 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-DX126

OK Running Costs

XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

The Sony VPL-DX126 has a pretty average projector brightness (2,600 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-DX126.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-DW125[plb_1443008_price].

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-DX300[plb_1858982_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
