8 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

On average data projectors from Sony are rated 89 out of 100, which is in the top 10% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Low Running Costs

The VPL-SW235 is in the cheapest 18% of all 89 data projectors of this age and spec that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the VPL-SW235 is only £85.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-SW235, the Sony VPL-SW235 has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Sony VPL-SW225[plb_2284439_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Sony VPL-EX276[plb_1564842_price], or the Hitachi CP-CW250WN[plb_2240799_price].
