Many of the projectors we get a look at are
designed to be lugged around seminars and workshops in all the far flung
business parks of Britain.
However, I reckon these Sony VPL models, the CX20 and CS20 have to be the
slimmest we’ve seen yet standing just 52mm tall and weighing only 1.9kg plus they
look pretty slick to boot. The VPL-CX20 is the snazzier model as it is capable
of 1028 x 768 resolution; the CS20 will manage 800 x 600 which is still
adequate for slideshows and the like. Each produces an impressive 2000 ANSI
lumens from the Sony 3LCD technology and will suit the projectors to a wide
range of environments. The Auto Focus means that you can leave them to set themselves
up, generating a 300″ viewing area. Short focus also means that this can be
done even in a small room. So, they’re probably quite pricey but you aren’t
going to get much better performance from a smaller device than these.
