9 Reasons For

Sony Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

We checked the reviews from experts and users of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each multimedia projector brand. On average Sony projectors have excellent ratings from users and experts.

Low Running Costs

The VPL-SW225 is one of the cheaper to run similar spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the VPL-SW225 will cost only £85 over 1 year to run.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec, the Sony VPL-SW225 has a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to look at include cheaper multimedia projectors such as the CP-CW250WN[pl_2240799_price], or the CP-CX300WN[pl_2172494_price] both from Hitachi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Sony VPL-EX276[plb_1564842_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The VPL-SW225 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-SW225. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this data projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA). Across all 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-SW225 the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-SW225 have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 230h and 20,000h. When compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the VPL-SW225 that we have checked, the VPL-SW225's service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10,000 hours is one of the longest.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-SW225 is 4,400h. The VPL-SW225 has a quite long service life of lamp (6,000 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is typical of many projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The VPL-SW225 does not support 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW225 also do not support 3D.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D that you might want to consider including the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years, the VPL-SW225 does not support full HD.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider including the Hitachi CP-CX300WN[plb_2172494_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other data projectors of this type and age, the VPL-SW225 does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Hitachi CP-WX4022[plb_1887899_price].

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-SW225 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. Across all the projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-SW225 the projector brightnesss range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens.

Alternative 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might also want to consider include the Hitachi CP-CW250WN[plb_2240799_price] which is cheaper.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the VPL-SW235[pl_2284441_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the VPL-DX147[pl_2516968_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper) both from Sony.
