Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-SW636C has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than a year.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the VPL-CW276 ($1,399.00), or the VPL-SW631 ($1,251.06) both from Sony which is cheaper.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The VPL-SW636C supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA). Across all projectors of this age and type the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 4096 x 2160.

Very Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-SW636C the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 2,500h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 7,800h. When compared to other data projectors of this type and age that we have assessed the service life of lamp (economic mode) of, the VPL-SW636C's service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10,000 hours is one of the longest.

Very Long Service Life of Lamp

When compared to other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-SW636C, the Sony VPL-SW636C's service life of lamp of 6,000 hours is one of the longest. Data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-SW636C have service life of lamps of between 2,000h and 6,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The Sony VPL-SW636C has a fairly quiet noise level (only 28 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-SW636C. Across all the similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-SW636C the noise levels range from 28dB to 39dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 28dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including the Sony VPL-SW631 ($1,251.06) which is cheaper.

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The Sony VPL-SW636C has one of the dimmer projector brightness (economic mode)s (only 1,900 ANSI lumen) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The dimmest projector brightness (economic mode) of multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago is 1,900 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 15,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Heavy

With a weight of 6.3 kilograms, the Sony VPL-SW636C is one of the heavier 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than a year amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-SW636C have weights of between 3.4kg and 6.7kg.
