7 Reasons For

Sony Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Sony 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors have excellent ratings on average and across all data projectors Sony is one of the top rated brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors of this type and age, the Sony VPLDW120 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

The optical zooms of projectors of a similar age and type to the VPLDW120 range from 1x to 1.3x. With an optical zoom of 1.3 times zoom factor, the VPLDW120 has a fairly big optical zoom compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the VPLDW120.

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At 7,000 hours, the VPLDW120 has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPLDW120. The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPLDW120 range from 2,000h to 8,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,400h.

Very Light

The weights of 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPLDW120 range from 470g to 47kg, and the average weight is 7.1kg. At only 2.5 kilograms, the VPLDW120 is quite light compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPLDW120 the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.5W to 270W, and the average power consumption (PowerSave) is 110W. At only 0.5 Watts, the VPLDW120 has a fairly low power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VPLDW120.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Sony VPLDW120 does not support full HD. Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPLDW120 also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support full HD including the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support 3D

Most projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPLDW120 do not support 3D. The Sony VPLDW120 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The VPLDW120 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPLDW120 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age. The average projector brightness of projectors of this age and type is 4,100 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesss range from 500 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Sony VPL-CH355[plb_2577208_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens).
