6 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Projectors built by Sony are some of the best projectors according to average reviews from experts and users.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-SW631 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPL-SW631 also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper data projectors such as the Sony VPL-SX631[plb_3301602_price].

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the VPL-CW276[pl_2835285_price], or the VPL-SW636C[pl_3301604_price] both from Sony is also worth considering.
