8 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Sony projectors have an average rating of 89%, which is in the top 16% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.

Running Costs Are Low

The VPL-SX235 is in the cheapest 17% of all 92 multimedia projectors of this spec and age that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the VPL-SX235 will cost only £85 over 1 year to run.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-SX235, the VPL-SX235 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

This multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA), which is typical of many comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-SX235 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 230h and 20,000h. At 10,000 hours, the VPL-SX235 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

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 6,000 hours, the Sony VPL-SX235 has a quite long lamp service life compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-SX235. Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

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

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most projectors of this age and spec do not support 3D image projection. The VPL-SX235 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at including the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Sony VPL-SX235 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-SX235 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-SX235 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think the NEC NP-UM330[plb_1528333_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
