7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW235, the Sony VPL-SW235 does not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D including the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-SW235 do not support full HD. The VPL-SW235 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to consider including the Hitachi CP-CX300WN[plb_2172494_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The VPL-SW235 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-SW235 also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of comparable spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 230h and the longest is 20,000h. When compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the service life of lamp (economic mode) of the Sony VPL-SW235 of only 1,000 hour is one of the shortest.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

At only 1,700 ANSI lumen, the VPL-SW235 has a quite dim projector brightness (economic mode) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago. The average projector brightness (economic mode) of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-SW235 is 2,400 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness (economic mode)s range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 4,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Bulb Power

With a bulb power of only 210 Watts, the VPL-SW235 has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-SW235. The average bulb power of multimedia projectors of this age and type is 240W, and the bulb powers range from 140W to 400W.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

Similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the VPL-SW235 have matrix sizes of between 0.55" and 0.75". With a matrix size of only 0.59 inches, the VPL-SW235 has one of the smaller matrix sizes amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
