6 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 249 expert and owner reviews for Sony multimedia projectors and found that on average Sony has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Sony has good ratings specifically for its projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Sony VPL-SW526C has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-SW526C do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think a cheaper projector such as the Hitachi CP-AW3019WNM[plb_1740829_price] or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Viewsonic Pro9000[plb_1517329_price], and the Optoma HD30[plb_1915718_price] are also worth considering.

5 Reasons Against

The VPL-SW526C does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do support 3D image projection.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider including the Epson EH-TW7200[plb_3059146_price], the Panasonic PT-AT6000E[plb_1803042_price], or the Optoma HD30[plb_1915718_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Epson EH-TW7200[plb_3059146_price], or the Viewsonic Pro9000[plb_1517329_price]; or the Hitachi CP-AW3019WNM[plb_1740829_price].
