9 Reasons For

Good Brand

Sony is one of the superior projector brands according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Supports Full HD Projection

The VPL-FW65 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-FW65 do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the WUX6010 Medical, or the WUX6010 ($4,800.99) both from Canon which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Canon WUX450ST ($5,489.99).
