7 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Projector Reviews

Projectors produced by Sony have an average rating of 89 out of 100, which is in the top 16% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.

Quite Big Matrix Size

With a matrix size of 0.76 inches, the Sony VPL-FWZ65 has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other latest 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-FWZ65 the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.79".

Very Long Lamp Service Life

When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the VPL-FWZ65 that we have checked, the VPL-FWZ65's lamp service life of 20,000 hours is one of the longest. Across all the newly released similar spec projectors the lamp service lives range from 2,500h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 8,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Colour Light Output

The VPL-FWZ65 has one of the brighter colour light outputs (6,000 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. The average colour light output of latest similar spec data projectors is 4,400 ANSI lumens.

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out in the last year have noise levels of between 28dB and 41dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. The VPL-FWZ65 has a fairly quiet noise level (only 28 decibels) compared to most of the other newly released similar spec projectors.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 28dB noise level projectors currently available including the Sony VPL-FWZ60 which is cheaper.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Hitachi CP-WU8600 (35dB and cheaper).
