7 Reasons For

Sony Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

On average projectors produced by Sony are rated 89 out of 100, which is in the top 10% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-EX295 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the VPL-EX295.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Epson EH-TW490[plb_1731975_price].

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-EX295 is 75 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens. At 3,800 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-EX295 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If this 3300:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Benq SU917[plb_2750780_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens).

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The VPL-EX295 is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of data projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 600h and the longest is 30,000h. At 10,000 hours, the Sony VPL-EX295 has a fairly long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

At 16 Watts, the Sony VPL-EX295 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago. The RMS rated powers of comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-EX295 range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 8W.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Colour Light Output

Across all the projectors of this age and type the colour light outputs range from 1,800 ANSI lumens to 3,800 ANSI lumens. When compared to other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the VPL-EX295's colour light output of 3,800 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

4 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on data projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The Sony VPL-EX295 does not support 3D. Most of the other data projectors of this type and age also do not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the Optoma HD83[plb_1763299_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-EX295 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support full HD.

Other data projectors which also support full HD that you might want to look at include the Optoma HD83[plb_1763299_price], or the Panasonic PT-FX400U[plb_1816819_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Sony VPL-EX295 does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-EX295 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Gigabyte BRIX[plb_2116585_price] is also worth considering.

Reviewed 11 October 2015 by Dr. Sound
Dr. Sound would recommend the Sony VPL-EX295 (Verified Purchase)

A good basic presentation projector. Sony went cheap on the lens cover. It doesn't even snap onto the lens. You must tape it on...
