6 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

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.
