Two Sony VPL-VW320 reviewers who reviewed it reckoned that it was good for watching blu-ray discs. Mr. G. Speechley gave the Sony VPL-VW320 a very good review score and mentioned this year “If you are spending this level of cash on a projector and a true 4k Blu-Ray disc spinner, then £375.00 on a Chord Interconnect is wise” in their review of the Sony VPL-VW320.

Good Product Quality

One customer who bought this projector considered that it was good quality. In October Mr. G. Speechley wrote in their review “It would seem ultimate quality is dependant on source disc quality”.
