Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Multimedia projectors produced by Sony generally have excellent ratings compared to other brands. 100% of those that bought a Sony data projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Video

Supports Full HD

The Sony VPL-FHZ57 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for more than a year do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support full HD currently available including the WU515T ($2,579), or the WU515 both from Optoma or the Hitachi CP-WU8600 which is cheaper.

The worst resolution across similar types of data projector is XGA (1024x768).

Average Projector Brightness

At 4,100 ANSI lumens, the VPL-FHZ57 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

If this Sony data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the CP-WU8600 (6,000 ANSI lumens), or the CP-WX8750 (7,500 ANSI lumens) both from Hitachi which is also cheaper.

Multimedia

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-FHZ57 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Hitachi CP-WU8600, or the Optoma WU515T ($2,579) is also worth considering.
