11 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Multimedia projectors produced by Sony have an average rating of 89 out of 100, which is in the top 16% of all data projector brands that we have analysed.

Recent Price Drop of £850.35

In the last 59 days the VPL-FHZ60 has dropped in price by £850.35.

Supports Full HD Projection

The VPL-FHZ60 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year also support Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper data projectors such as the Sony VPL-FHZ57[plb_3221057_price].

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The VPL-FHZ60 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is actually the best resolution amongst all data projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-FHZ60.

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

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-FHZ60 is 3,700 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens. The VPL-FHZ60 has one of the brighter projector brightness (5,000 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

If this Sony projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the PT-DW830E[pl_3897896_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DX100[pl_3897897_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The VPL-FHZ60 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution across all projectors of this spec and age.

Across similar types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

The VPL-FHZ60 has one of the longer lamp service lives (20,000 hours) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the VPL-FHZ60 the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Sony VPL-FHZ60 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec which have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The VPL-FHZ60 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than a year ago which support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the PT-DW830E[pl_3897896_price], or the PT-DX100[pl_3897897_price] both from Panasonic is also worth considering.
