7 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This Sony projector received an expert rating of 60% from pcworld.pl. If all the multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years are ranked by average expert review score then this projector is in the bottom 29%.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years, the Sony VPL-SW535C does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the LG PB62G[plb_1488637_price], the Panasonic PT-DW740ELS[plb_1788305_price], or the Infocus IN8601[plb_1796831_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the VPL-SW535C, the VPL-SW535C does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the LG PB62G[plb_1488637_price], the Infocus IN8601[plb_1796831_price], or the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW535C do not support WiFi connectivity. The VPL-SW535C is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Sony VPL-DX146[plb_1609067_price] which is also higher rated.

3 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-SW535C

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when Sony released the VPL-SW535C.

OK Running Costs

The VPL-SW535C is typical compared to the other 41 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the VPL-SW535C is £149.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-SW535C has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to consider include the Vivitek D791ST[plb_1882397_price], the Hitachi CP-DX300[plb_1858982_price], or the Sony VPL-SX536[plb_1482371_price] which has better reviews.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the VPL-CH350[pl_2751969_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens), the VPL-CH355[pl_2577208_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-CH375[pl_2574953_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens) all from Sony which is also higher rated.
