Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-SW620 do not support 3D. The Sony VPL-SW620 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-SW620 does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-SW620 also do not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which also support full HD that you might want to look at including the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Sony VPL-SW620 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW620 also do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to consider include the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-SW620 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

There are a number of other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price].

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Promethean UST-P1[plb_2713404_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-CW300WN[plb_2411979_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).
