11 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Projector Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Sony multimedia projectors and also specifically for Sony 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors and found that in both cases Sony had good reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-SW536 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Sony VPL-SX536.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Sony VPL-CH350 ($1,499.95) is also worth considering.
