5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-SW620 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the NEC NP-M311W which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-SW620 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW620 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of this type and age do not support WiFi connectivity. The Sony VPL-SW620 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider include the NEC NP-UM330 ($935.61) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-SW620 is 100 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 8,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-SW620 has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

There are a number of alternative 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might also want to look at including the Epson 475Wi ($2,102.34) which has better reviews.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Promethean UST-P1 (3,000 ANSI lumens), the Hitachi CP-CW300WN (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the Sony VPL-SW630 ($1,189.95) (3,100 ANSI lumens).
