3 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Data projectors manufactured by Sony generally have good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago have projector brightness of between 110 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. When compared to other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the Sony VPL-FH500L's projector brightness of 7,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Christie DXG1051-Q[plb_3022337_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Sony VPL-FH500L is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).

This multimedia projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution across all data projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-FH500L.

An XGA (1024x768) native projector resolution is the worst resolution across comparable types of multimedia projector.

6 Reasons Against

Not Cheap

The cheapeast projectors of this age and type that we found costs £372 and the most expensive costs £7,698. We think that this projector looks expensive for a data projector of this age and type.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-FH500L have a built-in speaker, however the VPL-FH500L does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-FH500L does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-FH500L does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-FH500L does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-FH500L also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The VPL-FH500L is a one VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the VPL-FH500L have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.
