The throw ratio is quite wide on the VPL-EX455, so in rooms where it is a little awkward to position the projector this projector can go relatively close and far away, giving you more flexibility than most other projectors. It has some great connectivity options including two in HDMI ports and VGA (x2). With so many inputs you can connect to multiple sources without swapping cables around.
There is also a USB input to allow you to present PC-free via a USB stick and a microphone input. At a bright 3600 lumens, the VPL-EX455 is incredibly bright for the price and is bright enough to cope in rooms where the lights need to be on all day, although the selection of picture modes will allow you to tailor the light output depending on the content you’re showing. For example you would have it on a different mode for a video clip than you would for an excel spreadsheet. The 16W speaker built into the projector will provide plenty of sound. Overall, this is a robust and reliable projector that is bright and future proof.
