5 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Sony is one of the leading projector brands according to average reviews from experts and users, and Sony also has excellent reviews for its 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPLDX120 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

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