Sony Professional_ VPL-FH36/VPL-FH31 introduction
Introduction to the Sony Professional VPL-FH36 & VPL-FH31

7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Multimedia projectors manufactured by Sony have an average rating of 89 out of 100, which is in the top 16% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago which do not support Full HD projection, the VPLFH31 supports Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think the Canon WUX400ST[plb_2983475_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to consider include the Ricoh PJ WX6170N[plb_1582301_price].

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Sony VPLFH31 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the VPLFH31.

An XGA (1024x768) native projector resolution is the worst resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The VPLFH31 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPLFH31.

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution across all data projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPLFH31.

The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

At 0.76 inches, the Sony VPLFH31 has a quite big matrix size compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The smallest matrix size of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the VPLFH31 is 0.45" and the biggest is 55".

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Resolution

The biggest native resolution of the Sony VPLFH31 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the native resolution of the most frequently found native resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPLFH31 the best native resolution is 1080p (1920x1080) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Recent Price Increase of £318.56

The VPLFH31 has increased in price by £318.56 in the last fortnight.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The VPLFH31 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years do have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Canon WX-520[plb_2199325_price], or the NEC U250X[plb_1531486_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of this age and type, the Sony VPLFH31 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the NEC U250X[plb_1531486_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of a similar type and age to the VPLFH31 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Sony VPLFH31 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only One BNC Input Port

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years have between one and four BNC input ports, including the VPLFH31 which has one BNC input port.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Sony VPLFH31

Running Costs Are OK

The VPLFH31 has an average running cost of £131 over 1 year based on typical energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 86 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Released Over Four Years Ago

This 2000:1 contrast ratio projector was released over four years ago.

Average Noise Level

The VPLFH31 has a relatively typical noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPLFH31.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

At 4,300 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPLFH31 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the VPLFH31.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Canon WX-520[plb_2199325_price] (5,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
