6 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Projectors manufactured by Sony are some of the best projectors according to average reviews from experts and owners.

Only Released Six Months Ago

Sony only released the VPL-DX240 six months ago. Newer multimedia projectors like this one are likely to use better technology.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-DX240 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out in the last 12 months also have 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 the Sony VPL-EW235[plb_3703631_price] which is cheaper; or the Optoma HD142X[plb_3807775_price], and the DELL M900HD[plb_3821033_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
