10 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Sony 2500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all data projectors built by Sony.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-SX536 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Vivitek D791ST[plb_1882397_price] which is cheaper; or the Vivitek D795WT[plb_1839548_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Sony VPL-SW536[plb_1482370_price].
