6 Reasons For

Sony Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Sony has good average reviews for its projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

The VPL-FW60 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other latest comparable spec data projectors do not support Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might want to look at include the Epson EH-TW7300 which is cheaper.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson EH-TW9300 is also worth considering.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Latest projectors have projector brightness of between 37 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,200 ANSI lumens, the VPL-FW60 has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Sony VPL-FW60 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by latest projectors. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 576 (WSVGA) and 1280 x 720 (HD 720) and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution across all latest data projectors.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution across comparable types of projector.

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 20,000 hours, the VPL-FW60 has one of the longer service life of lamp in economic mode amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the new projectors the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 2,000h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 28 decibels, the Sony VPL-FW60 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were launched in the last 12 months. Across all the projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-FW60 the noise levels range from 22dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the EB-G7200W (39dB), or the EB-G7400U (31dB) both from Epson.

The Sony VPL-FW60 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other projectors that came out in the last 12 months.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the EB-G7400U, or the EB-G7200W both from Epson is also worth considering.
