7 Reasons For

Sony Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average Sony projectors are rated 89%, which is in the top 16% of all projector brands that we have analysed.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

Unlike most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-SW630 which do not support WiFi connectivity, the VPL-SW630 supports WiFi connectivity.

Other projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Sony VPL-SX630[plb_2576926_price], or the Epson EB-1935[plb_1806951_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-SW630 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-SW630.

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the NEC UM330[plb_1525062_price] which has better reviews; or the Sony VPL-SX630[plb_2576926_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Optoma EW695[plb_1719594_price] is also worth considering.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-SW630 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma EW695[plb_1719594_price].

With a weight of 6 kilograms, the VPL-SW630 is quite heavy compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. Data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-SW630 have weights of between 230g and 30kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The optical zooms of data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the VPL-SW630 range from 1x to 2x, and the average optical zoom is 1.5x. With an optical zoom of only 1.03 times zoom factor, the VPL-SW630 has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

3 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-SW630

Released Over Two Years Ago

This projector has been on the market for over two years.

1280 X 800 Graphics Resolution

The VPL-SW630 supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800. That's 47% less resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the VPL-SW630.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,100 ANSI lumens, the VPL-SW630 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-SW630.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Sony VPL-SX630[plb_2576926_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
