Sony VPL-FHZ65 Projector Summary presented by Projector Reviews TV
Sony VPL-FHZ65 Projector Overview presented by Projector Reviews TV

10 Reasons For

One Industry Award

This multimedia projector received a "Hot Product" award from Projectorreviews.com.

Good Brand

Data projectors made by Sony have an average rating of 89%, which is in the top 16% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Sony VPL-FHZ65 supports Full HD projection, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-FHZ65.

We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the Sony VPL-FHZ60[plb_2971553_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 6,000 ANSI lumens, the VPL-FHZ65 has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The dimmest projector brightness of projectors of a similar spec and age to the VPL-FHZ65 is 600 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the PT-DW830E[pl_3897896_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DX100[pl_3897897_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic which also has a higher rating.

The VPL-FHZ65 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution across all 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-FHZ65.

An XGA (1024x768) native projector resolution is the worst resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution across all multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the VPL-FHZ65.

Across comparable types of data projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).
