9 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Data projectors manufactured by Sony are some of the better data projectors according to average expert and user reviews.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Sony VPL-EW348 supports Full HD projection, as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-EW348.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the VPL-EW345[pl_3038011_price], or the VPL-EW315[pl_3022931_price] both from Sony which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-EW348 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper projectors such as the VPL-EW345[pl_3038011_price], or the VPL-EW315[pl_3022931_price] both from Sony.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Sony VPL-EW348 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-EW348. Projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-EW348 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 4096 x 2160 (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

At 0.75 inches, the VPL-EW348 has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-EW348. Across all the projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-EW348 the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.96", and the average matrix size is 0.64".

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

The VPL-EW348 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the projectors of this age and type. Most of the projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-EW348 only have one USB 2.0 port, however this data projector has two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Colour Light Output

At 4,200 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-EW348 has a fairly bright colour light output compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. Comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-EW348 have colour light outputs of between 1,800 ANSI lumens and 5,200 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright White Light Output

Multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-EW348 have white light outputs of between 1,800 ANSI lumens and 5,200 ANSI lumens. At 4,200 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-EW348 has a fairly bright white light output compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-EW348.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The VPL-EW348 has a fairly quiet noise level (only 29 decibels) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-EW348. The quietest noise level of data projectors of this spec and age is 22dB and the loudest is 45dB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 29dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including the VPL-EW315[pl_3022931_price], or the VPL-EW345[pl_3038011_price] both from Sony which is cheaper.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the NEC M353WS[plb_3119768_price] (30dB) which is also higher rated.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 3700:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year do not support WiFi connectivity. The Sony VPL-EW348 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Sony VPL-EW348 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-EW348 also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

We think this projector looks expensive compared to other 3700:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year. We checked 3700:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year and they range in price from £524 to £900.

4 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-EW348

Average Running Costs

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the VPL-EW348 is £113, which is typical compared to the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Sony released the VPL-EW348.

Average Projector Brightness

At 4,200 ANSI lumens, the VPL-EW348 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 3700:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year.

We compared all the other 4,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Sony VPL-EW345[plb_3038011_price] is also worth considering.
