9 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all Sony data projectors and also specifically for Sony 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Sony had excellent reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-SW536 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-SW536 also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including the Sony VPL-CH350 ($1,499.95) which is cheaper.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Sony VPL-CH355 ($1,499.00) is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Two S-Video Inputs Quantitys

The VPL-SW536 has more s-Video inputs quantitys than most of the data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-SW536. Most of the comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago only have one s-Video inputs quantity, however this projector has two s-Video inputs quantitys.

Chart Edit

Two Composite Video Ins

The VPL-SW536 has more composite video ins than most of the 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. Most of the multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-SW536 only have one composite video in, however this Sony projector has two composite video ins.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

Projectors of this type and age have RMS rated powers of between 1W and 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 5.4W. With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the Sony VPL-SW536's RMS rated power is one of the highest amongst 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is typical of many 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

Data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW536 have projector brightness (economic mode)s of between 1,500 ANSI lumens and 5,600 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness (economic mode) is 2,100 ANSI lumens. At 2,000 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-SW536 has a quite bright projector brightness (economic mode) compared to most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW536.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The power consumption (PowerSave)s of multimedia projectors of this age and type range from 0.5W to 270W, and the average power consumption (PowerSave) is 110W. With a power consumption (PowerSave) of only 0.5 Watts, the VPL-SW536 has one of the lower power consumption (PowerSave)s amongst projectors of this age.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Sony VPL-SW536 does not support full HD. Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-SW536 also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Sony VPL-CH350 ($1,499.95) is also worth considering.
