6 Reasons For
Multimedia projectors manufactured by Sony are some of the best multimedia projectors according to average user and expert reviews.
Only Released Six Months Ago
The VPL-DX270 was only relased by Sony six months ago. Newer projectors like this one are likely to have better features.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
Like most of the other recently released data projectors, the VPL-DX270 has a built-in speaker(s).
Other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at include the Pico Genie M400 Pro[plb_3288158_price] which is cheaper; or the LG PH450UG[plb_3843261_price] which has better reviews.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions
This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many new data projectors.
Very Bright Projector Brightness
The dimmest projector brightness of battery powered projectors that were launched in the last 12 months is 40 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 3,500 ANSI lumens. When compared to other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-DX270, the projector brightness of the VPL-DX270 of 3,500 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.
Two HDMI Ports Quantitys
The VPL-DX270 is a two HDMI ports quantity projector.

12 Reasons Against
Price Has Increased by £52.54
The price of the VPL-DX270 has increased by £52.54 in the last 43 days.
Does Not Support 3D
Most similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-DX270 do not support 3D. The VPL-DX270 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.
We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D to this data projector and we think the Pico Genie M400 Pro[plb_3288158_price]; or the LG PH450UG[plb_3843261_price] are also worth considering.
Does Not Support Full HD
Like most of the other latest projectors, the VPL-DX270 does not support full HD.
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
Like most of the other latest similar spec projectors, the VPL-DX270 does not support wi-Fi.
We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Pico Genie M400 Pro[plb_3288158_price].
+9 More reasons against
Very Low RMS Rated Power
The average RMS rated power of battery powered projectors that came out in the last year is 5.5W, and the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 26W. The VPL-DX270 has one of the lower RMS rated powers (only 1 Watt) amongst battery powered projectors of this age.
Very Short Service Life of Lamp
The VPL-DX270 has one of the shorter service life of lamps (only 3,000 hours) amongst battery powered projectors of this age. The shortest service life of lamp of battery powered projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-DX270 is 3,000h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 20,000h.
Very Low Vertical Synchronization (max)
The VPL-DX270 has one of the lower vertical synchronization (max)s (only 0.092 kilohertz) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-DX270 have vertical synchronization (max)s of between 0.092kHz and 120kHz, and the average vertical synchronization (max) is 44kHz.
With a weight of 2.7 kilograms, the VPL-DX270 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that came out in the last year. The lightest new battery powered projector is 130g heavy and the heaviest is 8.3kg.
Only One Number of Built-In Speakers
The Sony VPL-DX270 is a one number of built-in speakers multimedia projector.
Very Loud Noise Level
The average noise level of projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-DX270 is 32dB. With a noise level of 41 decibels, the VPL-DX270's noise level is one of the loudest amongst recently released battery powered projectors.
Very Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)
The quietest noise level (economic mode) of battery powered projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-DX270 is 25dB, the loudest is 35dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB. At 35 decibels, the VPL-DX270 has a very loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other battery powered projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-DX270.
We think this multimedia projector looks expensive compared to other recently released similar spec projectors. The cheapeast battery powered projector that was launched in the last 12 months that we found costs £226 and the most expensive costs £931.
