The VPL-FH36 has a maximum native resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the native resolution of the most common native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-FH36 have a built-in speaker, however the Sony VPL-FH36 does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Canon WUX400ST[plb_2983475_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

The VPL-FH36 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-FH36 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Expensive

We checked 23 multimedia projectors of this age and type and they range in price from £372 to £7,698. We think that this projector looks expensive compared to other multimedia projectors of this age and type.

Very Loud Noise Level

Across all the comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-FH36 the noise levels range from 28dB to 42dB. When compared to other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the noise level of the VPL-FH36 of 40 decibels is one of the loudest.
