7 Reasons For
Sony Projectors Have Good Reviews
Multimedia projectors manufactured by Sony have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just multimedia projectors) and found that Sony also has good reviews across its entire range.
Just Released Five Months Ago
This projector has only been on the market for five months. Newer projectors like this one are likely to have more advanced features.
50Hz AC Input Frequency
This data projector has a 50/60Hz AC input frequency, which is the most frequently found AC input frequency on new multimedia projectors.
Supports Full HD Projection
Unlike most of the other recently released multimedia projectors which do not support Full HD projection, the VPL-HW45ES supports Full HD projection.
Other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper data projectors such as the EIKI EK-402U (£1,528.80).
1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution
This projector has a native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on latest multimedia projectors.
If the resolution of this projector is too low for you then you might also want to consider the EIKI EK-402U (£1,528.80) (WUXGA (1920x1200)) which is also cheaper.
1.6:1 Zoom Ratio
The VPL-HW45ES supports a maximum zoom ratio of 1.6:1. That's 45% more zoom ratio than a 1.1:1 projector, which is the most frequently found zoom ratio supported by latest similar spec projectors.
This projector's zoom ratio (1.6:1) is in fact the best supported zoom ratio amongst all new multimedia projectors.
A 1.1:1 zoom ratio is the worst supported zoom ratio across comparable types of projector.

Quite Quiet Noise Level
The noise levels of recently released data projectors range from 22dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB. The VPL-HW45ES has one of the quietest noise levels (only 22 decibels) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The VPL-HW45ES does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-HW45ES which have a built-in speaker.
Alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the EIKI EK-402U (£1,528.80).
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The VPL-HW45ES does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-HW45ES.
There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at including the EIKI EK-402U (£1,528.80) which is also cheaper.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The VPL-HW45ES does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-HW45ES also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Very Dim Projector Brightness
At only 1,800 ANSI lumen, the Sony VPL-HW45ES has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year. The average projector brightness of multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-HW45ES is 3,900 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 37 ANSI lumens to 8,200 ANSI lumens.
Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the EIKI EK-402U (£1,528.80) (4,700 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
+2 More reasons against
Only One Audio in Port
Most multimedia projectors that were launched in the last year have between one and two audio in ports, including the Sony VPL-HW45ES which has one audio in port.
