Sony VPL-FHZ65 Projector Summary presented by Projector Reviews TV
Sony VPL-FHZ65 Projector Overview presented by Projector Reviews TV

11 Reasons For

One Industry Award

The reviewer at one expert review site decided that this data projector was good. This projector received a "Hot Product" award from Projectorreviews.com.

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Sony is one of the better rated multimedia projector brands according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors.

Reasonably Priced

One person considered that the product was good value for money. Last year Projectorreviews.com mentioned “Sony's VPL-FHZ65 Laser Projector offers high performance and better value than earlier commercial laser projectors”.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Sony VPL-FHZ65 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-FHZ65 also support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The VPL-FHZ65 has a quite bright projector brightness (6,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-FHZ65. Across all the data projectors of this spec and age the projector brightness range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might 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 which also has a higher rating.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the VPL-FHZ65 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is in fact the best resolution across all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago.

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

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The VPL-FHZ65 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 amongst all data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-FHZ65.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

Very Big Matrix Size

When compared to other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-FHZ65 that we have assessed, the VPL-FHZ65's matrix size of 0.76 inches is one of the biggest. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-FHZ65 the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.76".

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago is 6,200h, and the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h. With a lamp service life of 20,000 hours, the VPL-FHZ65 has one of the longer lamp service lives amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

At only 28 decibels, the Sony VPL-FHZ65 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age. The noise levels of similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-FHZ65 range from 25dB to 47dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Not Cheap

The cheapeast projectors that were launched more than a year ago that we found costs £176 and the most expensive costs £6,734. We think that this data projector looks expensive for a projector of this spec and age.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-FHZ65 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-FHZ65 do have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the VPL-FHZ65 support 3D image projection, however the VPL-FHZ65 does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the PT-DX100[pl_3897897_price], or the PT-DW830E[pl_3897896_price] both from Panasonic which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-FHZ65 do not support WiFi connectivity. The VPL-FHZ65 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

High Running Costs

The VPL-FHZ65 is one of the less economic to run 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than a year that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the VPL-FHZ65 will cost £167 over 1 year to run.

Chart

Only One BNC Input Port

The Sony VPL-FHZ65 is a one BNC input port projector. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-FHZ65 have between one and seven BNC input ports.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Sony VPL-FHZ65 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port projector.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

The Sony VPL-FHZ65 is a one HDMI port data projector.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The weights of projectors of this age and type range from 430g to 68kg, and the average weight is 5.5kg. At 16 kilograms, the Sony VPL-FHZ65 is quite heavy compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-FHZ65.
