Other

Released Over Three Years Ago

This 3000:1 contrast ratio data projector has been on the market since April 2017.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-SX630 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Hitachi CP-WX4022 (£860.69), and the Optoma EX685 (£815.30) which is cheaper; or the NEC UM330Xi (£936.50) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the Sony VPL-SX630 does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support full HD including the CP-WX4022 (£860.69), the CP-X5022 (£786.23), or the CP-CW300WN (£704.40) all from Hitachi.

Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The VPL-SX630 supports Wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors of this age and type do not support Wi-Fi.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors which support Wi-Fi currently available including the Hitachi CP-WX4022 (£860.69) which is cheaper; or the Epson EB-425W (£769) which has better reviews.

Other multimedia projectors which also support Wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the Sony VPL-SW620C (£1,036.20).

Has an Ethernet LAN

The Sony VPL-SX630 has an Ethernet LAN. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago also have an Ethernet LAN.

Projector

Average Projector Brightness

The VPL-SX630 has a fairly typical projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

If this 3000:1 contrast ratio data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Epson EB-1930 (£699) (4,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 33 decibels, the VPL-SX630 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to this projector. The average noise level of multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to this multimedia projector is 35dB, and the noise levels range from 25dB to 45dB.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the VPL-SW620C (£1,036.20) (33dB), or the VPL-SW630C (£1,066.99) (33dB) both from Sony.
