9 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Sony data projectors and also specifically for Sony 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Sony had excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-SW536, the VPL-SW536 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Sony VPL-CH350[plb_2751969_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might also want to look at including the VPL-CH370[pl_2752052_price], or the VPL-CH355[pl_2577208_price] both from Sony.
