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

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-SW536C which do not have a built-in speaker, the VPL-SW536C has a built-in speaker.

5 Reasons Against

Most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years support 3D image projection, however the VPL-SW536C does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[pl_2301495_price], or the PowerLite Pro G6900WU[pl_1919039_price] both from Epson or the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Panasonic PTAE7000U[plb_1897671_price] which also has a higher rating.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q7[plb_2086346_price], or the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] is also worth considering.
