Expensive

The price range of data projectors of this spec and age is from £322 to £17,341. We think that this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector looks expensive compared to other data projectors of this spec and age.

It was April 2017 when Sony released the VPL-FWZ65.


Multimedia

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year, the VPL-FWZ65 does not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Sony VPL-FHZ60 (£5,593.24) is also worth considering.

Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 6,000 ANSI lumens, the VPL-FWZ65 has one of the brighter projector brightnesses amongst projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to this data projector is 4,100 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesses range from 600 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Panasonic PT-DW830E (8,500 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Sony Vpl-fhz65 (28dB).
