8 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Data Projector Reviews

Sony 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors have excellent reviews on average and across all projectors Sony is one of the top rated brands.

Supports Full HD

The VPL-CH370 supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think the Sony VPL-CH355 ($1,499.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Sony VPL-CH375 ($2,279.95), or the DELL 7700 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-CH370 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to look at including the Sony VPL-CH355 ($1,499.00) which is cheaper.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might also want to look at including the Sony VPL-CH375 ($2,279.95), or the DELL 7700.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution across all comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-CH370.
