5 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Projectors produced by Sony are some of the better projectors according to average reviews from experts and owners.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Sony VPL-SW620C supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW620C do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available that you might also want to look at including the NEC NP-UM330[plb_1528333_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-SW620C has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-SW620C also have a built-in speaker.

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 were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The average service life of lamp in economic mode of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-SW620C is 5,800h. At 8,000 hours, the VPL-SW620C has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-SW620C does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and spec, the VPL-SW620C does not support Full HD projection.

Alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which is also higher rated.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-SW620C has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. Across all the comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-SW620C the projector brightness range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

We compared all the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price], and the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 500[plb_2231990_price] is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Promethean UST-P1[plb_2713404_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens).

Quite High Power Consumption During PowerSave
