8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Projectors manufactured by Sony generally have good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Price Drop of £405.93

The price of the VPL-FWZ65 dropped by £405.93 in the last few weeks.

Fairly Big Matrix Size

With a matrix size of 0.76 inches, the VPL-FWZ65 has one of the bigger matrix sizes amongst projectors of this age. The average matrix size of latest 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors is 0.66".

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 20,000 hours, the VPL-FWZ65's lamp service life is one of the longest amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched in the last year. Latest comparable spec projectors have lamp service lives of between 2,500h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 8,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Colour Light Output

At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the VPL-FWZ65 has a quite bright colour light output compared to most of the other recently released projectors. The average colour light output of newly released projectors is 4,400 ANSI lumens, and the colour light outputs range from 2,500 ANSI lumens to 6,500 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on new 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The VPL-FWZ65 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 28 decibels) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-FWZ65 have noise levels of between 28dB and 41dB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 28dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Sony VPL-FWZ60[plb_3301778_price].

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-WU8600[plb_3255968_price] (35dB) which is also cheaper.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other new comparable spec projectors have a built-in speaker, however the VPL-FWZ65 does not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to consider including the Hitachi CP-WU8600[plb_3255968_price] which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The VPL-FWZ65 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other recently released similar spec projectors also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Hitachi CP-WU8600[plb_3255968_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors do not support 3D image projection. The Sony VPL-FWZ65 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-FWZ65 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Sony VPL-FWZ65 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

Latest 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors range in price from £220 to £13,126. We think that this multimedia projector looks expensive compared to other latest 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Only One BNC Input Port

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched in the last year have between one and five BNC input ports, including the Sony VPL-FWZ65 which has one BNC input port.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Sony VPL-FWZ65 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port data projector.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched in the last 12 months have between one and two HDMI ports, including the VPL-FWZ65 which has one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The lightest 10000:1 contrast ratio projector that has been available for around the same time as the VPL-FWZ65 is 2.2g heavy and the heaviest is 28kg.

4 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPL-FWZ65

Released Nine Months Ago

Sony released the VPL-FWZ65 nine months ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the VPL-FWZ65 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched in the last 12 months.

We compared this projector to all the other 6,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think cheaper projectors such as the Hitachi CP-WU8600[plb_3255968_price] is also worth considering.
