8 Reasons For

Sony Projectors Have Good Reviews

Sony is one of the superior projector manufacturers according to average owner and expert review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-SW235, the Sony VPL-SW235 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the NEC M361X[plb_1525014_price], or the Sony VPL-SW225[plb_2284439_price] which is cheaper.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to consider including the Hitachi CP-WX4022[plb_1887899_price].
