Reviews

Excellent Brand

Data projectors built by Sony generally have excellent reviews compared to other brands. 100% of those that bought a Sony multimedia projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Video

Supports Full HD

The VPL-FW65 supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type also support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Canon WUX6010 Medical (£4,224.00) or you might consider a better rated data projector such as the Canon WUX450 (£4,833.60) are also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Panasonic PT-DX820BE (£4,792.80) is also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Panasonic PT-DX820BE (£4,792.80) (8,200 ANSI lumens).

Very Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 28 decibels, the Sony VPL-FW65 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to this multimedia projector. Data projectors of a comparable spec and age to this multimedia projector have noise levels of between 28dB and 42dB.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Canon WUX500 (£3,508.80) (37dB and cheaper), or the Sony VPL-FH65 (£4,980.00) (35dB and cheaper).

Multimedia

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-FW65 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to this multimedia projector which have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Canon WUX450 (£4,833.60) or the Canon WUX6010 Medical (£4,224.00).
