8 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The VPL-DX142 has an average running cost of only £75 over 1 year based on typical energy prices, which is in the cheapest 7% of all 89 projectors of this age and spec.

Sony Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Projectors from Sony have an average rating of 89 out of 100, which is in the top 10% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-DX142 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price], and the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price] is also worth considering.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Sony VPL-DW122[plb_2514842_price] is also worth considering.
