3 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Projector Reviews

We checked the expert and user reviews of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each projector brand. On average data projectors from Sony have good reviews from users and experts.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-SW631, the VPL-SW631 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Sony VPL-SX631[plb_3301602_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 28 decibels, the VPL-SW631 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-SW631. The quietest noise level of newly released similar spec projectors is 21dB and the loudest is 41dB.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW631, the VPL-SW631 does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-SW631 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-SW631 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Sony VPL-SX631[plb_3301602_price].

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Sony VPL-SW631 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other recently released 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Only 1600 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The Sony VPL-SW631 has a maximum maximum digital resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. That's 17% less maximum digital resolution than the most frequently found maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels.

A 1600 x 1200 pixels maximum digital resolution is actually the worst maximum digital resolution amongst all multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-SW631.

Amongst similar types of projector the best maximum digital resolution is 1920 x 1200 pixels.

Very Dim Colour Light Output

At only 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-SW631 has a quite dim colour light output compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-SW631. The average colour light output of multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW631 is 4,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

Across all the new projectors the optical zooms range from 1x to 1.8x. The VPL-SW631 has a quite small optical zoom (only 1.03 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW631.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

At only 0.59 inches, the VPL-SW631 has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched in the last 12 months. The smallest matrix size of comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-SW631 is 0.45" and the biggest is 0.96".

4 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-SW631

Released Over a Year Ago

This 3000:1 contrast ratio projector was released over a year ago.

Running Costs Are OK

The VPL-SW631 has an average running cost of £110 over 1 year based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other new projectors.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-SW631 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-SW631.

We compared all the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this data projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Sony VPL-SX631[plb_3301602_price] is also worth considering.
