Alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider include the NEC M271X (£185.36) which is cheaper; or the Sony VPL-DW127 (£435.88), or the NEC M311X (£518.60) both of which have better reviews.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the VPL-DX147 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this projector.

We compared this data projector to all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think cheaper projectors such as the Sony VPL-DX142 (£383.40) is also worth considering.
