Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-EW225 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon WX is also worth considering.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Data projectors of a similar type and age to this projector have projector brightnesses of between 1,800 ANSI lumens and 3,200 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-EW225 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If you are looking for a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the WX (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the S-300 (3,000 ANSI lumens) both from Canon which also has a higher rating.
