Excerpt: Sony turned the high-end projector world on its ear with the introduction of the VPL-VW100 SXRD projector. The VPL-VW100 offered resolution and performance far beyond other projectors at or near its price point. Sony has continued to push that envelope with more and more SXRD offerings at lower price points. The latest is the VPL-HW10, which is the lowest-priced SXRD projector yet at $3,500. It brings the high resolution and high contrast of SXRD to the budget market.
Conclusion: I’d like to say that the VPL-HW10 is a significant improvement over the older VPL-VW40 it replaces. And, as it turns out, it is, true in some regards. While it offers only minor improvements in image performance, such as sharpness, black levels, etc., where it does shine, though (pun intended), is in brightness, and price performance.

Summary: The price of this Sony has been up and down like a portable projector screen in the past six months or so. We’ve seen it at a far cheaper £1750, yet, here we are now with a retail price of around £2100. Having said that, once again, at the time of writing we've spotted it a little cheaper in places. Best to search online.

W testach mieliśmy już topowy model VPL-VW200, teraz dotarł do nas model o wiele tańszy VPL-HW10, który również dysponuje panelami SXRD (LCOS). Technologia ta to połączenie elementów technologii DLP i LCD. LCOS oznacza liquid crystal on silicon. Projektory te, podobnie jak LCD opierają się najczęściej na trzech układach reprodukujących trzy podstawowe kolory.

Pros: Tolles Bild von allen Quellen, Leises Betriebsgeräusch
