Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-SW535C has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this type and age.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Ricoh PJ WX4130, the Vivitek Qumi Q2, and the Sony VPL-DW120 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the VPL-SW535C has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

There are a number of other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Qumi Q2, the D795WT, or the D791ST all from Vivitek.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the VPL-CH350 ($1,499.95) (4,000 ANSI lumens), the VPL-CH355 ($1,499.99) (4,000 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-CH375 ($1,999.99) (5,000 ANSI lumens) all from Sony which is also higher rated.
