Supports Full HD

The Sony VPL-FHZ60 supports full HD, unlike most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the VPL-FHZ60 which do not support full HD.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The Sony VPL-FHZ60 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago.

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of projector.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-FHZ60 the projector brightnesss range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the VPL-FHZ60 has one of the brighter projector brightnesss amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the PT-DW830E[pl_3897896_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DX100[pl_3897897_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic.
