Reviews

Sony Multimedia Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Data projectors produced by Sony generally have excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers. 100% of those that bought a Sony multimedia projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-EW245 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this multimedia projector.

We compared this 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 Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of data projectors of a similar age and type to this projector is 2,900 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesses range from 1,800 ANSI lumens to 3,200 ANSI lumens. The VPL-EW245 has a fairly bright projector brightness (3,100 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 2300:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this projector.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the DELL S500 (£797.12) (3,200 ANSI lumens).

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as this data projector, the VPL-EW245 does not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the LV-WX300 (£932.00), or the WX300UST both from Canon is also worth considering.
