7 Reasons For
Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors
Sony multimedia projectors have an average rating of 89 out of 100, which is in the top 16% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have looked at.
Supports Full HD Projection
The Sony VPL-FHZ700L supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-FHZ700L do not support Full HD projection.
Very Bright Projector Brightness
The projector brightness of the Sony VPL-FHZ700L of 7,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest amongst comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the VPL-FHZ700L. 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-FHZ700L have projector brightness of between 2,600 ANSI lumens and 7,000 ANSI lumens.
WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution
The VPL-FHZ700L has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all data projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPL-FHZ700L the best resolution is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is VGA (640x480).
Very Quiet Noise Level
At only 33 decibels, the Sony VPL-FHZ700L has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The quietest noise level of 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-FHZ700L is 33dB and the loudest is 40dB.
Very Big Matrix Size
The matrix sizes of 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years range from 0.55" to 0.95", and the average matrix size is 0.65". When compared to other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-FHZ700L that we have checked the matrix size of, the VPL-FHZ700L's matrix size of 0.95 inches is one of the biggest.
+2 More reasons for
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 multimedia projectors that are a similar age to it.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The Sony VPL-FHZ700L does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-FHZ700L.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Most 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-FHZ700L do not support WiFi connectivity. The VPL-FHZ700L is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.
The price range of multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age is from £456 to £8,693. We think that this data projector looks expensive compared to other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age.
Only One BNC Input Port
Most data projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-FHZ700L have between one and five BNC input ports, including the VPL-FHZ700L which has one BNC input port.
+3 More reasons against
Across all the projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-FHZ700L the weights range from 2.2kg to 22kg. At 22 kilograms, the VPL-FHZ700L is very heavy compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.
The VPL-FHZ700L is very wide (530 millimeters) compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-FHZ700L. Multimedia projectors of this age and spec have widths of between 280mm and 530mm, and the average width is 350mm.
2 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-FHZ700L
Average Running Costs
The VPL-FHZ700L has an average 1 year running cost of £134 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 13 similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years.
Released Over Two Years Ago
This multimedia projector was released over two years ago.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Sony VPL-FHZ700Luses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.66 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 17 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
