5 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-SW526C

Released Over Two Years Ago

Sony released the VPL-SW526C over two years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the VPL-SW526C has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

1280 X 800 Supported Graphics Resolutions

The VPL-SW526C supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800. That's over three times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the VPL-SW526C.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The Sony VPL-SW526C has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 51% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,500 ANSI lumens, the VPL-SW526C has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq W750 ($805.27), and the LG SA560 is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the HD151X (2,800 ANSI lumens), or the HD25e ($949.00) (2,800 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma which also has a higher rating.
