Some products come out of the box looking so good that you can't help but expect that they'll perform well too. The Sony VPL-FH35, aimed at anything from large conference rooms to small auditoriums, is that kind of product. Even better, it lives up to expectations.

The good looks grow from a combination of smart design and excellent fit and finish. The low profile white case with rounded corners makes the 5.8" x 15.3" x 18.8" (HWD) projector look graceful rather than big and clunky. In addition, the connectors are in front, letting you run the cables so the audience won't see either the cables or connections.

The beauty is more than skin deep. Sony rates the projector at 5200 lumens. We measured it a little lower, but bright enough for the size room it's meant for. LCD-based, its 1920x1200 native resolution makes it a good choice for showing complex data images with fine detail.

Sony also throws in some important extras, including the 1.6x zoom lens and both vertical and horizontal lens shift for easy setup, a side-by-side mode that lets you show two 960-pixel wide images from different sources, and a gamma mode designed for medical images like X-rays and MRIs. The VPL-FH35 is, in short, both impressive and well worth the price, at $5,850 list and widely available for less than $4,000.
