5 Reasons For
Sony Data Projectors Have Excellent Reviews
On average data projectors from Sony are rated 89 out of 100, which is in the top 10% of all projector brands that we have assessed.
Supports Full HD
The VPL-EW345 supports full HD, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-EW345.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
The VPL-EW345 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 3700:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-EW345 also have a built-in speaker(s).
Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys
The VPL-EW345 is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity projector. Most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.
Quite Quiet Noise Level
With a noise level of only 29 decibels, the VPL-EW345 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type. The average noise level of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-EW345 is 35dB, and the noise levels range from 22dB to 45dB.
We compared this projector to all the other 29dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think the Optoma H182X[plb_2972176_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Canon LV-WX300[plb_2810800_price] (33dB).

Does Not Support Wi-Fi
Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the VPL-EW345 does not support wi-Fi.
