Summary: Personal Experience Sony really opened the door & gave the average earner a chance at high quality with this VPL-HW10 full HD projector.It gave a balance of performance that JVC-Panasonic et al, could not match wiyhout charging at least a 33% premium.
Summary: Bought the projector about 1.5 years back. Put 1600+ hrs on the lamp as of now in both low/high lamp modes. The lamp is still going strong. The projector has lived up to its expectations. I have owned two projectors before the sony HW10 and by far this is the best. The colors are too good.
I should have purchased the Sony VPL-HW10 when it was first introduced.

Summary: I previously owned the 720p 165 watt Sony VPL-AW15 which I was very satisfied with. However, the 1080p 200 watt VPL-HW10 is brighter and has overall improved picture quality. The cooling fan is so quiet that I cannot tell it is running.
Summary: This unit it awesome. It has really put the WOW in my theater set up. I'm projecting on to a 120" 16:9 screen and the picture in fantastic. The projector was easy to set up, has a great user interface, and the 30,000:1 contrast makes the picture pop!
Summary: Personal Experience I have had the HW10 for three months now. I up-graded from an HS51. The improvement is amazing. The picture is sharper, has more color and handles rapid movement better. Set-up was a bit trying, but there are enough set-up features to overcome most situations.
Summary: I have owned several projectors (DLP, LCD, LCOS) and I have to say this projector is a tremendous value. Picture has great blacks, depth, saturation, and very sharp image. Color is very good out of the box, but will improve even more with calibration. One of the very best values on the market.
Excerpt: Um ein Heimkino perfekt zu machen, bedarf es eines guten Beamers. Wir kauften den Beamer vor circa einem Jahr als Nachfolger für unseren Sanyo Z3, welcher sich zum Schluss immer öfter ohne erkennbaren Grund ausschaltete.
Pros: Geringe Geräuschentwicklung, tolle Optik, FullHD, gute Individuelleinstellung möglich
