10 Reasons For
Sony Projectors Have Good Reviews
Projectors produced by Sony have an average rating of 89 out of 100, which is in the top 16% of all projector manufacturers that we have analysed.
Price Drop of £670.33
In the last 46 days the price of the VPL-FH65 has dropped by £670.33.
Supports Full HD Projection
The VPL-FH65 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-FH65 do not support Full HD projection.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the Panasonic PT-DZ680.
Fairly Bright Projector Brightness
The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-FH65 is 2,700 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 5,000 ANSI lumens. The Sony VPL-FH65 has one of the brighter projector brightness (6,000 ANSI lumens) amongst data projectors of this age.
Alternative 6,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper projectors such as the Panasonic PT-DZ680.
WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution
This data projector has a native projector resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200), which is typical of many 2000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year.
We compared all the other projectors that have a resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200) to this data projector and we think the Panasonic PT-DZ680 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Sony VPL-FH65 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this type and age.
A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution across all 2000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-FH65.
The worst supported resolution across comparable types of data projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).
+5 More reasons for
Very Quiet Noise Level
Multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago have noise levels of between 34dB and 40dB. With a noise level of only 35 decibels, the VPL-FH65 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were released one year ago.
Other 35dB noise level projectors currently available which you might want to consider include the Panasonic PT-DZ680 which is cheaper.
Fairly Big Lamp Power
The smallest lamp power of comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-FH65 is 190W and the biggest is 400W. The Sony VPL-FH65 has a quite big lamp power (370 Watts) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-FH65.
Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode
The average noise level in economy mode of projectors of this age and type is 31dB, and the noise levels in economy mode range from 29dB to 37dB. With a noise level in economy mode of only 29 decibels, the VPL-FH65 has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.
10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate
This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many projectors of this age and type.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The Sony VPL-FH65 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-FH65 which have a built-in speaker.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Most similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-FH65 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Sony VPL-FH65 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than a year, the Sony VPL-FH65 does not support 3D image projection.
Not Cheap Compared to Other Multimedia Projectors of This Type and Age
After checking the price of 16 multimedia projectors of this type and age they range in price from £299 to £7,016. We thought that this data projector looks expensive for a projector that came out more than a year ago.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Short Lamp Service Life
With a lamp service life of only 3,000 hours, the VPL-FH65 has one of the shorter lamp service lives amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The average lamp service life of projectors of this age and spec is 3,700h, and the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 5,000h.
