5 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Sony multimedia projectors and also specifically for Sony 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Sony had excellent ratings.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPLDW126 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

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

This data projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most commonly supported supported graphics resolutions on projectors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At 7,000 hours, the VPLDW126 has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. Across all the similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 2,000h to 8,000h.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPLDW126 does not support full HD. Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPLDW126 also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPLDW126, the VPLDW126 does not support 3D.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support 3D which you might want to look at including the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] which also has a higher rating.

The dimmest projector brightness (economic mode) of 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPLDW126 is 1,500 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 5,600 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness (economic mode) is 2,100 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness (economic mode) of only 1,500 ANSI lumen, the Sony VPLDW126 has a fairly dim projector brightness (economic mode) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPLDW126.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VPLDW126 is 5.4W. With an RMS rated power of only 1 Watt, the VPLDW126 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Colour Light Output

The average colour light output of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the VPLDW126 is 3,500 ANSI lumens, and the colour light outputs range from 2,600 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPLDW126 has a fairly dim colour light output compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPLDW126.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

Across all the data projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPLDW126 the bulb powers range from 190W to 400W. At only 210 Watts, the VPLDW126 has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPLDW126.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPLDW126 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the VPLDW126.

Alternative 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might also want to consider include the Sony VPL-DW125[plb_1443008_price] which has better reviews.

If this 2500:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-DX300[plb_1858982_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
