When Are Most New Sony Projectors Released?

Over the last 3 years we couldn't see any prominent trend in the release month for new Sony projectors. In March 2017 eight new Sony data projectors were released making it the biggest month that year for new Sony projector releases. In 2016 most new Sony multimedia projectors were released in March as well, with five new Sony multimedia projectors released that month. The biggest month in 2015 for new Sony data projector releases was September, with nine new Sony data projectors released that month.

How Fast Do Sony Multimedia Projector Prices Drop After Release?

Sony data projectors tend to depreciate faster than most data projectors. Most data projectors drop in price by 3% in the first 6 months after release. In the first 6 months after release, Sony projectors drop in price by 8% on average. That means that on a typical Sony projector costing £1,495 you could save on average £124 by waiting 6 months before buying.
