Sony Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked 249 expert and user reviews for Sony multimedia projectors and found that on average Sony has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Sony has good reviews specifically within its 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors range.

£262.08 Price Drop

In the last 39 days the price of the VPL-SW536 has dropped by £262.08.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPL-SW536, the Sony VPL-SW536 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Sony VPL-SX536[plb_1482371_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the VPL-SW526[pl_1482384_price], or the VPL-CH350[pl_2751969_price] both from Sony is also worth considering.
