3 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Multimedia Projector Reviews

Sony is one of the top rated multimedia projector manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all data projectors.

Just Released Eight Months Ago

Sony only released the VPL-GTZ280 eight months ago.

DCI 4K (4096 X 2160) Projector Native Resolution

The Sony VPL-GTZ280 has a maximum resolution of DCI 4K (4096 x 2160). That's over eleven times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

This data projector's resolution (DCI 4K (4096 x 2160)) is in fact the best resolution across all similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for the last year.

Across comparable types of data projector the worst resolution is WVGA (854x480).

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-GTZ280 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-GTZ280 which have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The VPL-GTZ280 does not support 3D. Most of the other latest 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors do support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The Sony VPL-GTZ280 does not support full HD, unlike most of the other new 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors which support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Optoma DS348[plb_3381925_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Sony VPL-GTZ280 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-GTZ280 also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesss of 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last year range from 300 ANSI lumens to 5,400 ANSI lumens. At only 2,000 ANSI lumens, the VPL-GTZ280 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other new data projectors.

If this Sony data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the A1500[pl_3772390_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the A1300W[pl_3772355_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Acer.

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

Most 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-GTZ280 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the VPL-GTZ280 which has one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

The lightest similar spec projector that is a comparable age to the VPL-GTZ280 is 110g heavy, the heaviest is 40kg, and the average weight is 3.8kg. When compared to other 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released in the last year, the VPL-GTZ280's weight of 40 kilograms is one of the heaviest.

1 Other reason to consider the Sony VPL-GTZ280

Average Noise Level

The VPL-GTZ280 has a fairly standard noise level (30 decibels) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for the last year.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the X1385WH[pl_3021307_price] (30dB), the Z650[pl_3287896_price] (30dB), or the H5381BD[pl_3690290_price] (30dB) all from Acer.
