12 Reasons For
Expert Reviews Are Average
This data projector received a rating of 78 out of 100 from projector expert review website chip.com.tr.
Sony Has Good Data Projector Reviews
Sony is one of the superior data projector brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Sony also has good reviews for its projectors.
Good Picture Quality
Two Sony VPL-VW320 reviewers who reviewed it reckoned that it was good for watching blu-ray discs. Mr. G. Speechley gave the Sony VPL-VW320 a very good review score and mentioned this year “If you are spending this level of cash on a projector and a true 4k Blu-Ray disc spinner, then £375.00 on a Chord Interconnect is wise” in their review of the Sony VPL-VW320.
Good Product Quality
One customer who bought this projector considered that it was good quality. In October Mr. G. Speechley wrote in their review “It would seem ultimate quality is dependant on source disc quality”.
One person mentioned in their reviews that it was retro. Mr. G. Speechley said this month “If this is true, then retro buying your older favourite movies may be a waste of time” in their Sony VPL-VW320 review.
Supports Full HD Projection
The VPL-VW320 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-VW320 do not support Full HD projection.
+7 More reasons for
Supports 3D Image Projection
The VPL-VW320 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched more than a year ago.
4096 X 2160 Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Sony VPL-VW320 is 4096 x 2160. That's over twenty-eight times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by data projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-VW320. In addition, this projector supports a graphics resolution of 3840 x 2160.
A 4096 x 2160 graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-VW320.
Amongst comparable types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).
1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the VPL-VW320 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The worst resolution of all projectors of this spec and age is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).
Very Big Digital Zoom
The digital zooms of projectors of this spec and age range from 1.1x to 2.1x. The digital zoom of the VPL-VW320 of 2.06 times zoom factor is one of the biggest amongst projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-VW320.
10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate
This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.
Very Quiet Noise Level
The quietest noise level of similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-VW320 is 22dB and the loudest is 39dB. At only 26 decibels, the Sony VPL-VW320 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-VW320.
9 Reasons Against
A Bit Expensive
One person who reviewed this projector considered that it was not a bargain for the price. Mr. G. Speechley mentioned in their review of this projector “Premium ones of these do not come cheap”.
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The VPL-VW320 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The VPL-VW320 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-VW320 also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Projectors of this age and type range in price from £158 to £7,420. We think that this multimedia projector looks expensive compared to other projectors of this age and type.
+6 More reasons against
Very Dim Projector Brightness
The Sony VPL-VW320 has a quite dim projector brightness (only 1,500 ANSI lumen) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-VW320. The average projector brightness of projectors that were released one year ago is 3,400 ANSI lumens.
Very Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization
The lowest maximum horizontal synchronization of projectors that have been on the market for more than a year is 72kHz and the highest is 110kHz. The VPL-VW320 has one of the lower maximum horizontal synchronization (only 72 kilohertz) amongst projectors of this age.
Very Dim Colour Light Output
The average colour light output of projectors of this spec and age is 4,300 ANSI lumens, and the colour light outputs range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens. The VPL-VW320 has one of the dimmer colour light outputs (only 1,500 ANSI lumen) amongst projectors of this age.
Very Dim White Light Output
The average white light output of projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-VW320 is 4,300 ANSI lumens, and the white light outputs range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens. With a white light output of only 1,500 ANSI lumen, the Sony VPL-VW320 has one of the dimmer white light outputs amongst projectors of this age.
Projectors that have been available for more than a year have weights of between 9.7g and 18kg, and the average weight is 4.4kg. At 14 kilograms, the Sony VPL-VW320 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-VW320.
