Reviews

Excellent Brand

Multimedia projectors produced by Sony generally have excellent reviews. 100% of those that bought a Sony data projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Energy

OK Running Costs

The VPLFH31 is typical compared to the other 89 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the VPLFH31 will cost £131 over 1 year to run.


Other

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was April 2017 when Sony released the VPLFH31.


Multimedia

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPLFH31 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma EH505, or the Panasonic PT-EX610 (£1,966.54) which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Projector

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The Sony VPLFH31 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

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