Designed for class rooms and small organisations, it has some standout features like password protection, panel key lock, low fan noise and a short-throw lense. however the absence of an extra card reader slot and DVI port is notable.
Pros: Good resolution and brightness, Security functions prevent unauthorised access, Low fan noise and well placed exhaust
Cons: Lacks an additional card reader slot, DVI port omitted, Not the smallest projector around
Excerpt: Projector Reviews 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.
