4 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony VPLVW350ES

Ceiling Mountable

The Sony VPLVW350ES is ceiling mountable, and so is the Sony VPL-VW600ES, but the Sony VPLVW1100ES, the Sony VPLVW500ES and the Sony VPLVZ1000ES are not. More ...

'Ceiling Mountable' indicates whether the projector is capable of being mounted to the ceiling or not.

Ceiling mounting is the best way of assuring the projector always has a clear line of sight to the projecting surface.

Better Kagoo Score

The Sony VPLVW350ES has received a Kagoo Score of 77, whereas the Sony VPL-VW600ES scored 76 and the Sony VPLVW500ES scored 76.

Cheaper by $4,110

The Sony VPLVW350ES is $4,914.31 cheaper than the Sony VPL-VW600ES, $4,109.99 cheaper than the Sony VPLVW1100ES, $6,759.26 cheaper than the Sony VPLVW500ES and $12,004 cheaper than the Sony VPLVZ1000ES.

Better 4k.com Review Score

The Sony VPLVW350ES has a 4k.com review score of 86%, but the Sony VPL-VW600ES only has a rating of 71% and the Sony VPLVW1100ES only has a rating of 79% from the same site.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony VPLVW350ES

Only 4096 X 2160 (DCI 4K) Resolution

The Sony VPLVW350ES has a projector native resolution of 4096 x 2160 (DCI 4K) (as are the Sony VPL-VW600ES, the Sony VPLVW1100ES and the Sony VPLVW500ES), however the Sony VPLVZ1000ES has a projector native resolution of 4096 x 2400 (4K). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

3dB Louder Noise Level

The Sony VPLVW350ES is a 26 projector, and so do the Sony VPL-VW600ES and the Sony VPLVW500ES. That's 3dB louder than the Sony VPLVW1100ES (23dB) and 2dB louder than the Sony VPLVZ1000ES (24dB). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Lower Contrast Ratio

The Sony VPLVW350ES has a very high (150000:1) contrast ratio, and so are the Sony VPL-VW600ES and the Sony VPLVW500ES, but the Sony VPLVW1100ES has an ultra high contrast ratio. We do not know what type of contrast ratio the Sony VPLVZ1000ES have. More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

1,000 ANSI Lumens Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Sony VPLVW350ES is a 1 brightness projector, whereas the Sony VPL-VW600ES and the Sony VPLVW500ES are both 1,700 ANSI Lumens brightness projectors (200 ANSI lumens brighter), the Sony VPLVW1100ES is a 2,000 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (500 ANSI lumens brighter) and the Sony VPLVZ1000ES is a 2,500 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (1,000 ANSI lumens brighter). More ...

'Projector Brightness' is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

A Lot Smaller Bulb Power

The Sony VPLVW350ES has a bulb power of 230, however the Sony VPLVW1100ES is a 330W lamp power projector (100W bigger) and the Sony VPLVW500ES is a 265W lamp power projector (35W bigger). More ...

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Fewer Sellers

The Sony VPLVW350ES is only stocked by 2 sellers, but the Sony VPLVW1100ES is stocked by 4 stores and the Sony VPLVZ1000ES is stocked by 3 sellers. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by Over Two Years

The Sony VPLVW350ES is two years older than the Sony VPLVZ1000ES. The Sony VPLVW350ES is the same age as the Sony VPL-VW600ES.

$8 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the Sony VPLVW350ES costs $71 to run which is $8 more than the Sony VPL-VW600ES. Show assumptions.

Five Less Awards

Expert Review Rating is Much Worse

The average expert rating of the Sony VPLVW350ES is 86%, whereas the average expert rating of the Sony VPLVW1100ES is 90% (based on 6 reviews), the Sony VPLVW500ES is 91% (based on 20 reviews) and the Sony VPLVZ1000ES is 100% (based on 5 reviews).

Worse Soundandvision.com Review Score

The Sony VPLVW350ES has only received a review score of 84% from Soundandvision.com, but the Sony VPL-VW600ES has a score of 86% and the Sony VPLVW1100ES has a score of 90%.

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony VPLVW500ES

Only 4096 X 2160 (DCI 4K) Resolution

The Sony VPLVW500ES has a projector native resolution of 4096 x 2160 (DCI 4K) (as are the Sony VPL-VW600ES, the Sony VPLVW1100ES and the Sony VPLVW350ES), whereas the Sony VPLVZ1000ES has a projector native resolution of 4096 x 2400 (4K). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

Louder Noise Level

The Sony VPLVW500ES is a 26 projector, and so do the Sony VPL-VW600ES and the Sony VPLVW350ES. That's 3dB louder than the Sony VPLVW1100ES (23dB) and 2dB louder than the Sony VPLVZ1000ES (24dB). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area.

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

Dimmer Projector Brightness

More ...

'Projector Brightness' is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

65W Smaller Bulb Power

The Sony VPLVW500ES is a 265 lamp power projector, whereas the Sony VPLVW1100ES is a 330W lamp power projector (65W bigger) and the Sony VPLVW350ES is a 230W lamp power projector (35W smaller). More ...

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The Sony VPLVW500ES does not have a built-in speaker (As does the the Sony VPLVW1100ES), but the Sony VPL-VW600ES, the Sony VPLVW350ES and the Sony VPLVZ1000ES have this feature. More ...

A projector with built in speakers is able to play sound as well as display images.

Built in speakers mean that you don't need a separate amplifier to play sound with the projector image.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony VPLVW500ES has received a Kagoo Score of 76, but the Sony VPLVW1100ES scored 77, the Sony VPLVW350ES scored 77 and the Sony VPLVZ1000ES scored 77.

More Expensive by $6,759

The Sony VPLVW500ES is $1,845 more expensive than the Sony VPL-VW600ES, $2,649 more expensive than the Sony VPLVW1100ES and $6,759 more expensive than the Sony VPLVW350ES.

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this projector.
Older by Over Three Years

The Sony VPLVW500ES is 18 months older than the Sony VPL-VW600ES, one month older than the Sony VPLVW1100ES, 18 months older than the Sony VPLVW350ES and four years older than the Sony VPLVZ1000ES.

$13 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

The running costs over five years of the Sony VPLVW500ES are $76 which is $13 more than the Sony VPL-VW600ES and $5 more than the Sony VPLVW350ES. Show assumptions.
