9 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

We checked 249 expert and user reviews for Sony data projectors and found that on average Sony has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Sony has good reviews specifically for its 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Supports Full HD Projection

The VPL-CH355 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of this type and age do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might also want to consider including cheaper data projectors such as the Sony VPL-CH350[plb_2751969_price].

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Sony VPL-CH375[plb_2574953_price], or the DELL 7700[plb_1406488_price].

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Sony VPL-CH375[plb_2574953_price].
