Sony BRAVIA VPL-HW15 SXRD Projector

Sound & Vision Magazine
8 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Sony’s new BRAVIA VPL-HW15 is a reworking of last year’s VPL-HW10. At a modest $3,000 (modest as projectors go, that is), the VPL-HW15 offers a useful lineup of features and a picture that I didn’t expect at this price. With exceptional color, barely short of state-of-the-art blacks, and vivid, almost 3-D images on the best program material, it…. OK, I’m in danger of giving away the store up front. Read more to get the details.

  • Conclusion: Newer is better! The VPL-HW15 is better, and $500 less than the older HW10. Don’t expect a dramatic improvement, but overall, you do get a little more, for about 15% less dollars Skin tones are extremely good, bested only by a couple of projectors (the InFocus IN83 comes to mind). That said, I’d say the VPL-HW15 is the equal of my JVC RS20 (though slightly different).
  • Pros: Very good “Out of the Box” picture quality, Extremely good color accuracy post calibration in “best” mode, Very good black level performance for the price, one of the best mid-priced projectors in this regard, but not the best., Overall, an excellent, well balanced picture! Film-like, Good shadow detail, One of the better dynamic irises, in terms of not being intrusive, Two HDMI 1.3 inputs, full support for 24 fps, Deep Color, CEC etc., Very good menus, Really nice re...

Sony VPL-HW15 review

Stuff.tv
19 March 2010
  • Summary: With rival DLP and LCD projection technologies both notching up some impressive results in recent weeks, there’s real pressure resting on the shoulders of Sony’s latest SXRD projector, the VPL-HW15. But as further proof that there’s never been a better time to buy a projector, the HW15 soon shows that SXRD has no intention of lagging behind.

  • Conclusion: An outstanding projector with image quality that can be adjusted to rival the best on the market – we'd have liked frame interpolation too, though.

  • Summary: Overordnet set er Sonys projektor er fornuftigt køb, idet den er utrolig nem at sætte sig ind i, ser godt ud og samtidig har et ganske flot billede. De snævre indstillings-muligheder trækker dog ned, ligesom de fysiske mål nok vil afskrække de fleste. Har man pladsen og har man ikke noget imod måske at skulle tilpasse rummet en smule, får man dog en meget kraftig projektor, der samtidig spiller godt med de øvrige produkter i Bravia-serien.

建構劇院的靈魂 Sony VPL-HW15 SXRD投影機

Mobile01
26 April 2010
  • Excerpt: 暨上次測試過 這部旗艦級的投影機後,便因為其出色的表現讓小編念念不忘...但是其高貴的價格確實不是一般人負擔的起,所以相信也有許多人將目光放到較為入門的機種VPL-HW15上面,的確就規格面與價格面來看且不在意鏡頭電動調整功能的話,VPL-HW15似乎是更為超值的選擇,但如果光看規格表就能對一項產品下定論的話未免也太武斷了一些,所以小編決定還是找時間借來同樣也獲得HiVi 投影機BEST BUY獎項的VPL-HW15來比較一下這兩台機種到底有什麼異同之處吧! 包裝上打著大大的BRAVIA似乎宣告著VPL-HW15在畫質上面的堅持。 在這個價格帶如果不是MIJ的話...購買意願大概會降低許多吧..
