Excellent Brand

On average data projectors from Sony are rated 89 out of 100, which is in the top 10% of all projector brands that we have analysed.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the VPL-FHZ65 which do not support full HD, the Sony VPL-FHZ65 supports full HD.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the PT-DW830E[pl_3897896_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DX100[pl_3897897_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic which also has a higher rating.

We compared this projector to all the other 28dB noise level projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-FHZ60[plb_2971553_price] is also worth considering.
