4 Reasons For
Data projectors produced by Sony have excellent reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just data projectors) and found that Sony also has excellent reviews across its entire range.
Supports Full HD
The VPL-HW45ES supports full HD, unlike most of the other new data projectors which do not support full HD.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including cheaper projectors such as the EH-TW6700[pl_3812541_price], or the EH-TW6700W[pl_3812542_price] both from Epson.
We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support full HD including the EIKI EK-402U[plb_3798180_price].
1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution
This multimedia projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many projectors that came out in the last 12 months.
Quite Quiet Noise Level
With a noise level of only 22 decibels, the VPL-HW45ES has one of the quietest noise levels amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. Comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the VPL-HW45ES have noise levels of between 22dB and 40dB.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)
The VPL-HW45ES does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors that came out in the last 12 months do have a built-in speaker(s).
Other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to consider include the PRO9510L[pl_3888756_price], or the PRO8510L[pl_3737737_price] both from Viewsonic which is also cheaper.
Does Not Support 3D
The Sony VPL-HW45ES does not support 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors that came out in the last 12 months also do not support 3D.
Other projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to consider include the Viewsonic PRO8510L[plb_3737737_price], or the Epson EH-TW6700[plb_3812541_price] which is also cheaper.
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
Most new comparable spec multimedia projectors do not support wi-Fi. The VPL-HW45ES is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.
Other projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the Epson EH-TW6700W[plb_3812542_price] which is also cheaper.
Very Dim Projector Brightness
The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors that have been around for the last year is 100 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 8,000 ANSI lumens. The VPL-HW45ES has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 1,800 ANSI lumen) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.
Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the EH-TW6700[pl_3812541_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the EH-TW6700W[pl_3812542_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) both from Epson or the EIKI EK-401W[plb_3798176_price] (4,600 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
+2 More reasons against
Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity
Most comparable spec projectors that were launched in the last 12 months have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the VPL-HW45ES which has one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity.
