7 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Multimedia projectors manufactured by Sony are some of the better multimedia projectors according to average reviews from owners and experts.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-SW630 which do not support WiFi connectivity, the VPL-SW630 supports WiFi connectivity.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support WiFi connectivity and we think the Sony VPL-SX630[plb_2576926_price], and the Epson EB-1935[plb_1806951_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-SW630 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Sony VPL-SX630[plb_2576926_price] which is cheaper; or the NEC UM330[plb_1525062_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Hitachi CP-WU8440[plb_1857317_price].

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-SW630 range from 230h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,800h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 8,000 hours, the VPL-SW630 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode 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 projectors of this age and spec is 1,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,400h. With a lamp service life of 5,000 hours, the Sony VPL-SW630 has a quite long lamp service life compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection. The VPL-SW630 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at include the Optoma EW695[plb_1719594_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-SW630 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-SW630 also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPL-SW630 the weights range from 230g to 30kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. With a weight of 6 kilograms, the Sony VPL-SW630 is quite heavy compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-SW630.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The optical zooms of projectors of this age and spec range from 1x to 2x. At only 1.03 times zoom factor, the VPL-SW630 has a fairly small optical zoom compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-SW630.

Chart Edit

Expensive

We think this projector looks expensive compared to other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years. We checked 38 comparable spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years and they range in price from £107 to £2,457.

4 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-SW630

Running Costs Are Average

Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the VPL-SW630 will cost £127 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 92 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Released Over Two Years Ago

This projector was released over two years ago.

1280 X 800 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the VPL-SW630 is 1280 x 800. That's 47% less resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-SW630.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the VPL-SW630 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-SW630.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Sony VPL-SX630[plb_2576926_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
