It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the VPL-VW600ES[pl_3231568_price], the VPL-VW320ES[pl_3026757_price], or the VPL-VW350ES[pl_3231569_price] all from Sony.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support 3D currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the VPL-VW600ES[pl_3231568_price], the VPL-VW320ES[pl_3026757_price], or the VPL-VW350ES[pl_3231569_price] all from Sony.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VPL-HW65ES does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for more than a year.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD5255[plb_2831063_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors that have been around for around the same time as the VPL-HW65ES do not support wi-Fi. The VPL-HW65ES is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Vivitek Qumi Q6[plb_3137053_price].

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VPL-HW65ES the projector brightnesss range from 37 ANSI lumens to 8,200 ANSI lumens. At only 1,800 ANSI lumen, the Sony VPL-HW65ES has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the VPL-HW65ES.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 1,800 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Sony VPL-VW520 ES[plb_3022936_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Optoma HD28DSE[plb_3141654_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
