9 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Projectors produced by Sony generally have excellent ratings compared to other brands.

Supports Full HD

The VPL-FW65 supports full HD, unlike most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-FW65 which do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think the Canon WUX450[plb_3419214_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Canon WUX450ST[plb_3584068_price].
