Good Product Quality
One Sony VPL-VW320 owner who reviewed the Sony VPL-VW320 mentioned that it was good quality. Mr. G. Speechley mentioned on Amazon this year “It would seem ultimate quality is dependant on source disc quality”.

The VPL-VW320 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for the last year also support 3D image projection.
3840 X 2160 Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the VPL-VW320 is 3840 x 2160. That's over four times the resolution of a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by similar spec data projectors that were released in the last 12 months. The best resolution of all multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-VW320 is 4096 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

With a projector brightness of only 1,500 ANSI lumen, the Sony VPL-VW320 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for the last year. The dimmest projector brightness of comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-VW320 is 37 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 8,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,900 ANSI lumens.
+7 More reasons against
Pricey Compared to Other Projectors That Have Been On the Market for the Last Year
We think this projector looks expensive for a data projector that was released in the last 12 months. We checked 68 projectors that have been on the market for the last year and they range in price from £169 to £14,222.
Very Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization
At only 72 kilohertz, the Sony VPL-VW320 has a fairly low maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for the last year. The lowest maximum horizontal synchronization of newly released multimedia projectors is 0.1kHz, the highest is 100,000kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 15,000kHz.
Very Dim Colour Light Output
The average colour light output of comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last year is 4,300 ANSI lumens, and the colour light outputs range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 7,500 ANSI lumens. At only 1,500 ANSI lumen, the VPL-VW320 has a fairly dim colour light output compared to most of the other latest multimedia projectors.
Very Dim White Light Output
With a white light output of only 1,500 ANSI lumen, the VPL-VW320 has a quite dim white light output compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-VW320. The average white light output of data projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-VW320 is 4,300 ANSI lumens.
Only One Audio in Port
The Sony VPL-VW320 is a one audio in port multimedia projector.
Multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-VW320 have weights of between 2.7g and 28kg. At 14 kilograms, the Sony VPL-VW320 is quite heavy compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-VW320.
