8 Reasons For

Sony Projectors Have Good Reviews

Multimedia projectors from Sony have an average rating of 89%, which is in the top 16% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-SW636C which do not support Full HD projection, the VPL-SW636C supports Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other latest projectors, the VPL-SW636C has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The VPL-SW636C supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's 9% more resolution than a 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-SW636C. Projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-SW636C graphics resolutions range from 640 x 350 (worst) to 3840 x 2160 (best).

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other latest 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the VPL-SW636C has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

The VPL-SW636C is a two USB 2.0 port data projector. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for the last year have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 6,000 hours, the VPL-SW636C has a very long lamp service life compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-SW636C. The shortest lamp service life of recently released comparable spec projectors is 3,000h and the longest is 6,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-SW636C is 34dB. At only 28 decibels, the VPL-SW636C has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other newly released multimedia projectors.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Recent Price Increase of £249.92

In the last 12 days the price of the VPL-SW636C has increased by £249.92.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-SW636C does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW636C also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other latest comparable spec projectors, the VPL-SW636C does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Pricey

The price range of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for the last year is from £350 to £1,540. We think that this data projector looks expensive compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for the last year.

4 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-SW636C

Running Costs Are Average
