5 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Projector Reviews

2500:1 contrast ratio projectors built by Sony have excellent reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all data projectors (not just 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Sony also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years, the VPL-DX145 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price] is also worth considering.
