12 Reasons For

Good Expert Reviews

This 2500:1 contrast ratio projector received a score of 80% from data projector expert review website macworld.co.uk.

Sony Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Sony projectors and also specifically for Sony 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Sony had excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Running Costs Are Low

The VPL-DX140 has an average running cost of only £91 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 21% of all 43 data projectors of this spec and age.

Reasonably Priced

One customer wrote that the product was good value for money. Expert review site Macworld.co.uk said “Also excellent value for office environments” in their review of this projector.

Good Picture Quality

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it had good picture quality.

Good Technical Features

One Sony VPL-DX140 reviewer said in their reviews that the product had good features.

Good Product Quality

One Sony VPL-DX140 owner who bought the Sony VPL-DX140 considered that it was good quality. Macworld.co.uk said “Bright picture quality even on Eco-Mode, nice styling, fast onoff features mean you dont have to hang around” in their review of the Sony VPL-DX140.

Nice Design

One customer wrote in their reviews that it was good looking.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-DX140, the VPL-DX140 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-DW125, and the Vivitek Qumi Q2 is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Hitachi CP-DX300 (£332.99).

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This data projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Lamp Power (economic Mode)

When compared to other comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago that we have assessed, the VPL-DX140's lamp power (economic mode) of 7,000 Watts is one of the brightest. Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-DX140 the lamp power (economic mode)s range from 170W to 7,000W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 2,600W.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest comparable spec projector that came out around the same time as the VPL-DX140 is 470g heavy and the heaviest is 47kg. At only 2.5 kilograms, the VPL-DX140 is quite light compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-DX140 does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-DX140 also do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Sony VPL-DW125 is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Most projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-DX140 do not support 3D. The Sony VPL-DX140 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q2 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The VPL-DX140 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Horizontal Synchronization (max)

At only 92 kilohertz, the VPL-DX140 has a fairly low horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-DX140. Comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-DX140 have horizontal synchronization (max)s of between 90kHz and 110kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 94kHz.
