Good Brand

Sony has good average reviews for its projectors as well as across its entire projector range.

Nice Design

Some customers who reviewed it reckoned that it was smooth. Two years ago Soundandvision.com said “With its compelling reproduction of smooth detail, fine color”. Soundandvision.com also said “Smooth, clean detail”.

Good High Def TV

One Sony VPL-VW600ES reviewer who reviewed it mentioned that it was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert review site Soundandvision.com said “In case you haven't noticed—or have just returned from an extended spring break in Antarctica—the newest thing in home video is Ultra HD, or 4K”.

Reasonably Priced

One customer reckoned that it was good value for money. Expert website Projectorcentral.com wrote in their review of the Sony VPL-VW600ES “It is priced exorbitantly” and gave the product an excellent review score.

DCI 4K (4096 X 2160) Native Projector Resolution

The VPL-VW600ES has a maximum resolution of DCI 4K (4096 x 2160). That's over eleven times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) native projector resolution is actually the best resolution amongst all multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-VW600ES.

Supports Full HD Projection

The VPL-VW600ES supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that were launched more than a year ago do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the LG PF1500[plb_2938210_price], or the Optoma HD91+[plb_3016105_price] is also worth considering.

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and type, the VPL-VW600ES supports 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma HD91+[plb_3016105_price].

With a noise level of only 26 decibels, the Sony VPL-VW600ES has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-VW600ES.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Optoma HD91+[plb_3016105_price] (23dB).

6 Reasons Against

Inferior Picture Quality

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
