This data projector received a "Highly Rated" award from Projectorcentral.com.

Excellent Expert Reviews

Data projector expert review website projectorcentral.com scored this multimedia projector 90 out of 100.

Good Brand

Sony has good average reviews for its projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range.

Nice Design

One Sony VPL-HW65ES reviewer concluded that the Sony VPL-HW65ES was good looking. In October last year Projectorcentral.com said “The Sony VPL-HW65ES is an elegant home theater projector that succeeds by combining an array of effective processing features”.

Robust

One customer who bought the product reckoned that it was well made. Expert website Projectorcentral.com wrote in their review last year “The solid bla”.

Good Technical Features

One Sony VPL-HW65ES reviewer who reviewed it considered that it had good features.

Reasonably Priced

One Sony VPL-HW65ES owner who purchased the product concluded that it was good value for money. In October last year expert review site Projectorcentral.com mentioned “Like its predecessor it is priced at $3,999.”.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-HW65ES which do not support Full HD projection, the VPL-HW65ES supports Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection and we think the VPL-VW320ES[pl_3026757_price], the VPL-VW600ES[pl_3231568_price], and the VPL-VW350ES[pl_3231569_price] all from Sony which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-HW65ES, the Sony VPL-HW65ES supports 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the VPL-VW320ES[pl_3026757_price], the VPL-VW600ES[pl_3231568_price], and the VPL-VW350ES[pl_3231569_price] all from Sony which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The VPL-HW65ES has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-HW65ES the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

Comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-HW65ES have lamp service lives of between 2,000h and 30,000h. The VPL-HW65ES has a quite long lamp service life (6,000 hours) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-HW65ES.

Chart Edit

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 projectors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors that came out more than a year ago range from 22dB to 39dB. With a noise level of only 22 decibels, the Sony VPL-HW65ES's noise level is one of the quietest amongst projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-HW65ES.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Viewsonic PJD5555[plb_2816556_price] (32dB).

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Sony VPL-HW65ES does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other data projectors of this type and age which have a built-in speaker.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Viewsonic PJD5255[plb_2831063_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The VPL-HW65ES does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q6[plb_3137053_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-HW65ES have projector brightness of between 500 ANSI lumens and 8,200 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 1,800 ANSI lumen, the VPL-HW65ES has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-HW65ES.

We compared this data projector to all the other 1,800 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-VW520 ES[plb_3022936_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Epson EH-TW5300[plb_3024661_price] (2,200 ANSI lumens), or the Optoma HD28DSE[plb_3141654_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Only One HDMI Port

The Sony VPL-HW65ES is a one HDMI port projector.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Across all the projectors that were launched more than a year ago the weights range from 9.7g to 18kg. With a weight of 9 kilograms, the Sony VPL-HW65ES is fairly heavy compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-HW65ES.
