11 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Projector Reviews

2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors built by Sony have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that Sony also has good ratings across its entire range.

Price Drop of £75.21

The VPL-CH350 has dropped in price by £75.21 in the last 20 days.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Sony VPL-CH350 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Sony VPL-CH355[plb_2577208_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-CH350, the VPL-CH350 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the VPL-SW526[pl_1482384_price], and the VPL-SW536[pl_1482370_price] both from Sony which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Sony VPL-CH355[plb_2577208_price].
