Sony Has Excellent Multimedia Projector Reviews

Sony is one of the top rated data projector manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors. 100% of those that bought a Sony data projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Energy

OK Running Costs

The VPL-FW60 is typical compared to the other 20 projectors of this age and spec that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the VPL-FW60 is £138.


Other

Released Over a Year Ago

It was March 2016 when Sony released the VPL-FW60.


Video

Supports Full HD

The VPL-FW60 supports full HD, as do most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Sony VPL-FH60 (£2,933.06), the Vivitek DH3331 (£2,587), or the Ricoh PJ WX6170N (£2,665.82) are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Epson V11H753141 (£2,915.98) (8,000 ANSI lumens).
