9 Reasons For

Sony Has Excellent Data Projector Reviews

Sony is one of the best data projector manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Supports Full HD

The VPL-FW65 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other recently released 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD and we think cheaper projectors such as the Canon WUX6010 Medical[plb_3623237_price] is also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Canon WUX450ST[plb_3584068_price] is also worth considering.
