5 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Data projectors produced by Sony generally have good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-SW620C supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-SW620C do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors which support WiFi connectivity and we think the NEC NP-UM330 ($489.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-SW620C, the VPL-SW620C has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years is 230h, the longest is 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,800h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 8,000 hours, the VPL-SW620C has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-SW620C.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-SW620C do not support 3D image projection. The VPL-SW620C is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC NP-M311W which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago, the Sony VPL-SW620C does not support Full HD projection.

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

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the data projectors of this age and type the projector brightness range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-SW620C has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Sony VPL-DW127 ($779.95) which has better reviews.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Promethean UST-P1 (3,000 ANSI lumens).

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW620C have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the Sony VPL-SW620C which has one USB 2.0 port.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption During PowerSave

The lowest power consumption during PowerSave of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-SW620C is 0.1W, the highest is 330W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 170W. At 240 Watts, the VPL-SW620C has a fairly high power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-SW620C.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The VPL-SW620C is one of the heavier 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-SW620C (6 kilograms) amongst data projectors of this age. The lightest 3000:1 contrast ratio data projector that has been on the market for more than two years is 230g heavy, the heaviest is 30kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.
