6 Reasons For

Sony Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Sony projectors and also specifically for Sony projectors and found that in both cases Sony had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age which do not have a built-in speaker, the VPL-SW526C has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Hitachi CP-AW3019WNM[plb_1740829_price] which is cheaper; or the LG SA560[plb_1580800_price], or the Viewsonic Pro9000[plb_1517329_price] which has better reviews.

Multimedia projectors of this spec and age have matrix sizes of between 0.45" and 0.76", and the average matrix size is 0.64".

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The VPL-SW526C has a quite high RMS rated power (16 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago. The lowest RMS rated power of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1W, the highest is 30W, and the average RMS rated power is 9.6W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Sony VPL-SW526C does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-SW526C which support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Epson EH-TW7200[plb_3059146_price], the Panasonic PT-AE8000U[plb_1897386_price], or the Sony VPL-HW40ES[plb_3286333_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-SW526C does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-SW526C also do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might want to consider including the Epson EH-TW7200[plb_3059146_price], or the Viewsonic Pro9000[plb_1517329_price] or the Hitachi CP-AW3019WNM[plb_1740829_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-SW526C do not support WiFi connectivity. The Sony VPL-SW526C is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-SW526C have between one and three USB 2.0 ports, including the VPL-SW526C which has one USB 2.0 port.

Chart Edit

Only One Built-In Speaker

The VPL-SW526C is a one built-in speaker multimedia projector.

5 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-SW526C

Released Over Two Years Ago

This data projector was released over two years ago.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 35 decibels, the VPL-SW526C has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Viewsonic Pro9000[plb_1517329_price] (28dB and higher rated), or the LG SA560[plb_1580800_price] (32dB and higher rated); or the Hitachi CP-AW3019WNM[plb_1740829_price] (38dB and cheaper).

1280 X 800 Graphics Resolution

The VPL-SW526C supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800. That's over three times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The VPL-SW526C has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 51% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,500 ANSI lumens, the VPL-SW526C has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-SW526C.

We compared all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this data projector and we think the LG SA560[plb_1580800_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
