In March 2017, eight new Sony projectors were released making it the biggest month that year for new Sony projector releases. March was also the biggest month in 2016 for new Sony projectors, with five new Sony projectors released that month. Nine new Sony projectors were released in September 2015 making it the biggest month that year for new Sony data projector releases.

Sony multimedia projectors tend to depreciate faster than most projectors.

Most projectors drop in price by 3% in the first 6 months after release. On average Sony data projectors drop in price by 8% in the first 6 months after release. That means that on a typical Sony data projector costing £1,525 you could save on average £125 by waiting 6 months before buying.
