9 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Projector Reviews

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-FHZ60 which do not support full HD, the Sony VPL-FHZ60 supports full HD.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The Sony VPL-FHZ60 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This data projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution across all multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-FHZ60.

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of data projector.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago have projector brightnesss of between 600 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. At 5,000 ANSI lumens, the Sony VPL-FHZ60 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the VPL-FHZ60.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Panasonic PT-DW830E[plb_3897896_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens).

The highest resolution supported by the VPL-FHZ60 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution across all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-FHZ60.

Across comparable types of data projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).
