Reviews

Sony Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Based on 502 user and expert reviews, Sony has excellent ratings for its data projectors. Sony also has excellent ratings specifically within its 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors range.


Energy

Running Costs Are OK

The VPLDW120 has an average 1 year running cost of £95 based on typical energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 42 multimedia projectors of a similar age and type.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPLDW120 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other similar spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130, and the Sony VPL-DX140 (£425.20) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPLDW120 does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to consider including the Ricoh PJ WX4130.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years the projector brightnesses range from 500 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens. The VPLDW120 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 2,600 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Barco CVHD-31B (£2,859.31) (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Sony VPL-SW536C (£1,024.26) (3,100 ANSI lumens).
