9 Reasons For

Sony Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average Sony multimedia projectors are rated 89%, which is in the top 16% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Running Costs Are Low

The VPL-SW235 is one of the more economic to run projectors of a similar age and type that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the VPL-SW235 will cost only £85 over 1 year to run.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-SW235 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-SW235 also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider including cheaper projectors such as the Sony VPL-SW225[plb_2284439_price], or the Hitachi CP-CW250WN[plb_2240799_price].

Other projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at include the NEC M361X[plb_1525014_price].

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of data projectors of this age and type is 230h and the longest is 20,000h. The VPL-SW235 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode (10,000 hours) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-SW235 is 1,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,400h.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Sony VPL-SW235 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

Other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider include the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price] which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-SW235 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-SW235 also do not support Full HD projection.

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

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of this age and type do not support WiFi connectivity. The VPL-SW235 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Epson EB-425W[plb_1844228_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Released Over Two Years Ago

Average Projector Brightness

The VPL-SW235 has a pretty standard projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-SW235.

If this Sony projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Hitachi CP-CW300WN[plb_2411979_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
