Sony VPLEX4 Review

The Sony VPLEX4 projector is the entry level XGA unit in the sony business range. The EX4 offers an XGA resolution 2200 lumen brightness (fine for an artificially lit room) and a fairly portable 2.9kg. First thing we noticed from the EX4 when testing was that the sony was fairly large. Not much larger than most other projectors in its class but still for the portable presenter this will be a factor when choosing. Most projector in this class range at a round the 2.6-2.7kg mark.

The connections are fairly standard though generally we see most other brands' XGA units now featuring the newer DVI connection. The image itself had quite good colour reproduction tested in both use on a DVD player and a PC and while the colour was fairly good the contrast was quite poor. For a presentation in a lit room this would not be a huge problem as the contrast is nullified by ambient light in a room but for people presenting in a darker room the black will look more like a dark gray and this will also mean less detail in the shading on the image. Generally we'd only recommend it for fairly basic presentations with more multipurpose projectors being available from the DLP projector manufacturers.

It's one of the heavier units at 2.9kg but still remains portable enough with the more detailed XGA resolution providing for a quite detailed image.

Bottom line the unit is fine for powerpoint and other basic presentations but for detailed images and video requiring much higher contrast we'd recommend going the DLP route. Also we found the price to be a bit more than most units in the same class and this didn't translate into any extra quality or features.
