Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-DX126 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think because of its better review score, the Ricoh PJ WX4130 is also worth considering.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of this age and type the projector brightnesses range from 500 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. The VPL-DX126 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 2,600 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

We compared all the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Sony VPL-DW125 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this Sony data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Vivitek D795WT (£887.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Hitachi CP-DX300 (£332.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
