7 Reasons For
Sony Has Good Data Projector Reviews
We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each data projector manufacturer. On average multimedia projectors from Sony have good ratings from experts and owners.
Supports Full HD Projection
The VPL-FHZ700L supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-FHZ700L which do not support Full HD projection.
Very Bright Projector Brightness
The dimmest projector brightness of 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 2,600 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 7,000 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-FHZ700L's projector brightness is one of the brightest amongst multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.
WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution
The VPL-FHZ700L has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the VPL-FHZ700L the worst resolution is nHD (640x360) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).
If the resolution of this multimedia projector is too low for you then you might want to consider the Sony VPL-VW500ES (£8,799.00) (DCI 4K (4096 x 2160)) which also has a higher Rating.
Very Quiet Noise Level
At only 33 decibels, the VPL-FHZ700L has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-FHZ700L. Similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-FHZ700L have noise levels of between 33dB and 40dB.
Very Big Matrix Size
The VPL-FHZ700L has a very big matrix size (0.95 inches) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The average matrix size of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the VPL-FHZ700L is 0.65", and the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.95".
+2 More reasons for
10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate
This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The VPL-FHZ700L does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-FHZ700L also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The Sony VPL-FHZ700L does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-FHZ700L do support 3D image projection.
Expensive Compared to Other Projectors That Have Been Available for More Than Two Years
We thought that this Sony projector looks expensive for a projector of this age and spec. We checked 10 projectors that have been available for more than two years and they range in price from £490 to £8,862.
Only One BNC Input Port
Most multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years have between one and four BNC input ports, including the Sony VPL-FHZ700L which has one BNC input port.
+4 More reasons against
Only Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The VPL-FHZ700L is a two VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector.
8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-FHZ700L have widths of between 280mm and 530mm. At 530 millimeters, the VPL-FHZ700L is very wide compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the VPL-FHZ700L.
When compared to other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-FHZ700L that we have assessed the weight of, the VPL-FHZ700L's weight of 22 kilograms is one of the heaviest. The weights of 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-FHZ700L range from 2.2kg to 22kg, and the average weight is 8.4kg.
2 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-FHZ700L
OK Running Costs
The VPL-FHZ700L is typical compared to the other 10 multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the VPL-FHZ700L is £134.

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.
