Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Sony is one of the best data projector brands according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors. 100% of those that bought a Sony data projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-SW225 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the NEC M311X which has better reviews.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Hitachi CP-CX300WN, or the Sony VPL-SW235 ($799) is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago have projector brightnesses of between 100 ANSI lumens and 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the VPL-SW225 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as this projector.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the Sony VPL-DX147 ($779.95) (3,200 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
