Sony VPL-HW65ES Projector

When the Sony VPL-HW65ES was the object of a full-length review, it received our Hot Product Award. Here are some of the basics:

Sony VPL-FHZ65 Highlights

  • When calibrated, brighter than most
  • Very good brightness in brighter modes  (for handling some ambient light)
  • Multiple 2D and 3D picture modes (most with really good color)
  • 3D upgraded to RF (HW55ES was IR), but no 3D glasses included any more (that’s ok, you can buy good 3D glasses these days for under $20)
  • Full color management system (CMS) for excellent calibration
  • Very good lamp life (6000 hours in eco mode)
  • Large, backlit remote, with easy navigating menus 12 volt screen trigger
  • Wireless HDMI option
  • Reality Creation – dynamic detail enhancement for extremely crisp looking image
  • Great warranty

Videos that are part of the Projector Reviews TV channel are created by Projector Reviews Inc. If we review a projector and it wins one of our awards, it becomes eligible for a video summary. Of course, we can only do a limited number of these videos. In some cases, we will choose a projector review to do a video of. In other cases, a request may come from the manufacturer. As we do with the rest of the content on our website, we offer manufacturers Permissions.

With these paid Permissions, manufacturers can post these videos on their own websites, pass them out to their dealers, and use them for other promotional purposes including trade shows and point-of-sale displays in retail stores. These videos are very short versions of the full review. In just a few minutes worth of video we can't begin to capture all the information in the review, so we call this a video summary.

If this video is positive and enthusiastic about the projector, is simply because the review itself was positive and enthusiastic. We try to make the videos more fun, a bit less dry, with far less technical detail. Enjoy, but also visit the full review for more depth, even the settings that work best. Thanks! -art
