Expert Reviews Are Excellent

This data projector has an average expert rating of 93 out of 100 based on two expert reviews from sites including projectorcentral.com and soundandvision.com. This means that experts think this multimedia projector is one of the better projectors of a similar type and age.

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

On average Sony data projectors have excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all projectors produced by Sony.

Nice Design

Several Sony VPL-VW600ES owners who reviewed it reckoned that it was smooth. Three years ago expert website Soundandvision.com said in their review of this projector “With its compelling reproduction of smooth detail, fine color”. Soundandvision.com also wrote “Smooth, clean detail”.

Good High Def TV

One Sony VPL-VW600ES owner reckoned that the Sony VPL-VW600ES was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert review site Soundandvision.com gave this projector a rating of 4 stars and mentioned “In case you haven't noticed—or have just returned from an extended spring break in Antarctica—the newest thing in home video is Ultra HD, or 4K” in their review of this projector.

DCI 4K (4096 X 2160) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Sony VPL-VW600ES is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160). That's over four times the resolution of a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most common resolution.

A DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) projector native resolution is in fact the best resolution across all projectors of this type and age.

An nHD (640x360) projector native resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of data projector.

Supports Full HD

Very Quiet Noise Level

The Sony VPL-VW600ES has a fairly quiet noise level (only 26 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched more than a year ago. Data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the VPL-VW600ES have noise levels of between 22dB and 39dB.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Optoma HD91+[plb_3016105_price] (23dB).
