5 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Sony is one of the leading data projector manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and Sony also has excellent ratings for its data projectors.

Supports Full HD

The VPL-FW60 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the VPL-FW60 do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think the Epson EH-TW7300[plb_3907801_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Other projectors which also support full HD that you might want to look at include the Epson EH-TW9300[plb_3907802_price].

This data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 576 (WSVGA) and 1280 x 720 (HD 720) and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution amongst all data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-FW60.
