10 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

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

Running Costs Are Low

The VPL-SW225 is in the cheapest 19% of all 92 multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the VPL-SW225 will cost only £85 over 1 year to run.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-SW225 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper projectors such as the CP-CW250WN[pl_2240799_price], or the CP-CW300WN[pl_2411979_price] both from Hitachi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Sony VPL-SW235[plb_2284441_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The Sony VPL-SW225 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 1280 x 720 (HD 720) and 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 640 x 480 (VGA). The worst resolution of all data projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-SW225 is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-SW225 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-SW225 also do not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might also want to consider including the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price] which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection. The VPL-SW225 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the CP-CW300WN[pl_2411979_price], or the CP-CX300WN[pl_2172494_price] both from Hitachi which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-SW225 do not support WiFi connectivity. The VPL-SW225 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Hitachi CP-WX4022[plb_1887899_price].

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-SW225 is 3,500 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-SW225 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-SW225.

We compared all the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this data projector and we think the Hitachi CP-CW250WN[plb_2240799_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Hitachi CP-CW300WN[plb_2411979_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the Sony VPL-DX147[plb_2516968_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
