5 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Projector Reviews

On average Sony 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors have excellent ratings as do all multimedia projectors manufactured by Sony.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-DX146, the Sony VPL-DX146 has a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price] which has better reviews.

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of 7,000 hours, the VPL-DX146 has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years. Across all the 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-DX146 the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 2,000h to 8,000h.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-DX146, the VPL-DX146 does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price].

Does Not Support 3D

The Sony VPL-DX146 does not support 3D. Most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support 3D.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

With an RMS rated power of only 1 Watt, the Sony VPL-DX146 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the VPL-DX146 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-DX146.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think the Sony VPL-DX140[plb_1437607_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Sony VPL-CH355[plb_2577208_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens).
