5 Reasons For

Just Seven Months Old

This projector was only released seven months ago, so it is likely to have more advanced features than some of the older projectors.

DCI 4K (4096 X 2160) Native Projector Resolution

The Sony VPL-GTZ1 has a maximum resolution of DCI 4K (4096 x 2160). That's over eight times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (DCI 4K (4096 x 2160)) is in fact the best resolution across all similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VPL-GTZ1.

A WVGA (854x480) native projector resolution is the worst resolution amongst similar types of projector.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors that have a resolution of DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and we think the Sony SRX-T423 which have a better Kagoo Rating™ are also worth considering.

Supports Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors that are less than a year old, the VPL-GTZ1 supports Full HD projection.

It is worth considering different data projectors which support Full HD projection including a higher Kagoo Rating™ multimedia projector such as the [pl_2439398], the HD141 ($638.95), or the DH1009 all from Optoma.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for the last year, including the Sony VPL-GTZ1, support 3D image projection.

There are a number of other projectors which support 3D image projection which you might want to also look at including a higher rated product such as the [pl_2439398], the W313, or the HD141 ($638.95) all from Optoma.

Four HDMI Ports

The Sony VPL-GTZ1 is a four HDMI port multimedia projector. Most of the other latest multimedia projectors only have between one and three HDMI ports.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The VPL-GTZ1 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other projectors that were released in the last 12 months which have a built-in speaker.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker including the ZTE XMP800, the [plb_2439398], or the Infocus IN1142 ($351.99).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most of the data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-GTZ1, including the Sony VPL-GTZ1, do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the LG PW700, or the Philips HDP1590 are also worth considering.

Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,000 ANSI lumens, the VPL-GTZ1 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses amongst projectors of this age. Comparable spec projectors that have been available for the last year have projector brightnesses of between 700 ANSI lumens and 4,200 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the HD50 (2200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the HD151 (2800 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the W313 (3200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Optoma.

Very Deep

When compared to other projectors that came out in the last 12 months, the depth of the Sony VPL-GTZ1 of 535 millimeters is one of the deepest. Across all the comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the VPL-GTZ1 the depths range from 100mm to 540mm, and the average depth is 260mm.

Chart Edit

Very Tall

Similar spec data projectors that are less than a year old have heights of between 41mm and 310mm. With a height of 265 millimeters, the VPL-GTZ1 is quite tall compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-GTZ1.

Very Wide

With a width of 1,250 millimeter, the VPL-GTZ1 is very wide compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the VPL-GTZ1. The narrowest latest projector is 170mm wide and the widest is 1,300mm.

Chart Edit
