Excellent Brand

Sony is one of the top rated projector manufacturers according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The VPL-SX235 does not support 3D. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-SX235 also do not support 3D.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D which you might want to consider including the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-SX235 does not support full HD. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-SX235 also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other data projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the Sony VPL-SX235 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the EB-425W[pl_1844228_price], or the BrightLink 436Wi[pl_1875520_price] both from Epson which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Small Bulb Power

The Sony VPL-SX235 has one of the smaller bulb powers (only 210 Watts) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The smallest bulb power of comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-SX235 is 140W, the biggest is 400W, and the average bulb power is 240W.
