8 Reasons For

Sony Multimedia Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each multimedia projector manufacturer. On average Sony data projectors have excellent reviews from users and experts.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-SW225 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-SW225 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the CP-CW250WN[pl_2240799_price], and the CP-CX300WN[pl_2172494_price] both from Hitachi which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Sony VPL-SW235[plb_2284441_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The VPL-SW225 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this Sony projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA). Across all comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This data projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

Across all the projectors that came out more than two years ago the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 230h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,700h. When compared to other projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-SW225, the VPL-SW225's service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10,000 hours is one of the longest.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

The service life of lamps of projectors of this spec and age range from 1,500h to 30,000h. The VPL-SW225 has a fairly long service life of lamp (6,000 hours) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to it.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The VPL-SW225 does not support 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type also do not support 3D.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D and we think the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most data projectors of this spec and age do not support full HD. The Sony VPL-SW225 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Hitachi CP-CX300WN[plb_2172494_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Sony VPL-SW225 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Data projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPL-SW225 have projector brightnesss of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens. The VPL-SW225 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,600 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-SW225.

We compared all the other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Hitachi CP-CW250WN[plb_2240799_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Sony VPL-DX147[plb_2516968_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The projector brightness (economic mode)s of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 4,400 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness (economic mode) is 2,400 ANSI lumens. At only 1,700 ANSI lumen, the VPL-SW225 has a fairly dim projector brightness (economic mode) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-SW225.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Bulb Power

The average bulb power of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-SW225 is 240W, and the bulb powers range from 140W to 400W. With a bulb power of only 210 Watts, the VPL-SW225 has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type.
