Reviews

Sony Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

We checked 502 user and expert reviews for Sony data projectors and found that on average Sony has excellent ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Sony has excellent ratings specifically for its 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-SW536C has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to look at including a cheaper projector such as the Vivitek D791ST (£921.60) or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Vivitek D795WT (£887.99).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Sony VPL-CH350 (£1,268.02) is also worth considering.
