Sony Data Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Projectors produced by Sony generally have excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers. 100% of those that bought a Sony data projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Energy

Running Costs Are OK

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the VPL-SW620C will cost £130 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 97 projectors of this type and age.


Other

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was June 2014 when this Sony projector was released.


Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-SW620C does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support full HD including the CP-WX4022 (£860.69), or the CP-X5022 (£786.23) both from Hitachi; or the Infocus IN3118HD (£899.99).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-SW620C has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the NEC UM330Xi (£957.58) which has better reviews.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the VPL-CW276 (£1,049.99), or the VPL-SW630C (£1,066.99) both from Sony.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The VPL-SW620C has a quite dim projector brightness (only 2,600 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to this projector. The dimmest projector brightness of projectors of this type and age is 100 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens.

If this Sony projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Promethean UST-P1 (£1,060.98) (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Sony VPL-CW276 (£1,049.99) (5,200 ANSI lumens).

Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The VPL-SW620C supports Wi-Fi. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector do not support Wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors which support Wi-Fi currently available including the Sony VPL-SX630 (£881.42), or the Hitachi CP-WX4022 (£860.69) both of which are cheaper.

Has an Ethernet LAN

The VPL-SW620C has an Ethernet LAN. Most of the other projectors of this type and age also have an Ethernet LAN.

Performance

Quite Quiet Noise Level

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to this projector have noise levels of between 25dB and 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. The VPL-SW620C has a fairly quiet noise level (only 33 decibels) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this projector.

Other 33dB noise level projectors currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper projectors such as the Sony VPL-SX630 (£881.42).

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-WU8440 (£1,166.66) (35dB), or the Sony VPL-SW630C (£1,066.99) (33dB).
