Sony VPL-FHZ65 Projector Summary presented by Projector Reviews TV
Sony VPL-FHZ65 Projector Overview presented by Projector Reviews TV

10 Reasons For

One Industry Award

The expert at one expert review site decided that this projector was good. Projectorreviews.com gave this data projector a "Hot Product" award.

Excellent Brand

On average Sony data projectors are rated 89%, which is in the top 10% of all projector brands that we have assessed.

Reasonably Priced

One person considered that the product was good value for money. Last year Projectorreviews.com mentioned “Sony's VPL-FHZ65 Laser Projector offers high performance and better value than earlier commercial laser projectors”.

Supports Full HD

The Sony VPL-FHZ65 supports full HD, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-FHZ65 which do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-FHZ60[plb_2971553_price].

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The VPL-FHZ65 has one of the brighter projector brightnesss (6,000 ANSI lumens) amongst projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and spec the projector brightnesss range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the PT-DW830E[pl_3897896_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the PT-DX100[pl_3897897_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Panasonic.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Sony VPL-FHZ65 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution across all projectors of a comparable age and type to the VPL-FHZ65.

The worst resolution across comparable types of projector is XGA (1024x768).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The VPL-FHZ65 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-FHZ65.

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution across all projectors that have been available for around the same time as the VPL-FHZ65.

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

Very Big Matrix Size

The smallest matrix size of multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-FHZ65 is 0.55" and the biggest is 0.76". The VPL-FHZ65 has a very big matrix size (0.76 inches) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-FHZ65.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h. With a service life of lamp of 20,000 hours, the VPL-FHZ65 has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of data projectors of this spec and age range from 27dB to 47dB. With a noise level of only 28 decibels, the VPL-FHZ65 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the VPL-FHZ65.

We compared all the other 28dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think the Sony VPL-FHZ60[plb_2971553_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

In the last 21 days the VPL-FHZ65 has increased in price by £774.93.

Not Cheap
