The VPL-SW630C has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including cheaper data projectors such as the VPL-CW276 (£1,049.99), or the VPL-SW620C (£1,036.20) both from Sony.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at include the Hitachi CP-WU8440 (£1,166.66).

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the VPL-SW630C has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this data projector.

If this Sony data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the VPL-SX630 (£881.42) (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the VPL-CW276 (£1,049.99) (5,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper) both from Sony.
