Sony VPLCX21 portable projector

 

The Sony VPLCX21 projector is the entry level of the Sony portable business range. The unit offers an XGA resolution 2100 lumen brightness (fine for an artificially lit room) and a fairly portable 1.9kg. The units' casing is also fairly slim and small...

If the projector is pointed at the wall tilted no more then 10 degrees this projector works (in so much as it projects an image ; quality aside)....oh and its bright

Anything over 10 degrees and the projector automatically adjusts to fix the keystone effect which creates a blurred pixalated image. If you turn said function off and set the keystone effect back to 0 the image becomes clear yet the width of the...
