10 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors built by Sony have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all multimedia projectors (not just 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors) and found that Sony also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Sony VPL-CH350 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec do not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the Sony VPL-CH355 ($1,839.95).

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Sony VPL-CH350 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-CH350 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Sony VPL-SW536 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider including the Sony VPL-CH355 ($1,839.95).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The VPL-CH350 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

This data projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution across all projectors of this age and spec.

An XGA (1024x768) native projector resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of data projector.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the VPL-CH350 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-CH350.

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-CH350.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution across comparable types of projector.

Two S-Video Inputs

The VPL-CH350 has more S-Video inputs than most of the data projectors of this type and age. This multimedia projector is a two S-Video input projector compared to most of the 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-CH350 which only have one S-Video input.

Chart Edit

Two Composite Video in Ports

The VPL-CH350 is a two composite video in port multimedia projector.

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 5W, and the RMS rated power range from 1W to 16W. The VPL-CH350 has a fairly high RMS rated power (12 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-CH350.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-CH350 do not support 3D image projection. The VPL-CH350 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-CH350 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,000h and 8,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,500h. The VPL-CH350 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode (only 3,500 hours) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 38 decibels, the VPL-CH350 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-CH350 have noise levels of between 24dB and 51dB.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Sony VPL-SW536 (35dB) which is also cheaper.
