9 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Sony has excellent average reviews for its 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Good Picture Quality

One Sony VPL-CH375 owner who reviewed it concluded that it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

One Sony VPL-CH375 owner who reviewed the Sony VPL-CH375 thought it was good quality. Projectorreviews.com said in their Sony VPL-CH375 review “Good color balance good overall image quality possible”.

Supports Full HD

The Sony VPL-CH375 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to look at including the Sony VPL-CH370 ($1,939.95) which is cheaper.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the DELL 7700 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-CH375, the VPL-CH375 has a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper data projectors such as the Sony VPL-CH370 ($1,939.95).

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the DELL 7700.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The Sony VPL-CH375 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-CH375.

The worst resolution across similar types of projector is XGA (1024x768).
