Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPLSW536M has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Sony VPL-CH350 (£1,268.02) is also worth considering.

Alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at include the Vivitek D7180HD (£1,304.90), or the Sony VPL-CH370 (£1,426).

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPLSW536M does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Sony VPL-CH350 (£1,268.02).
