Summary: Personal Experience This doesn't replace the hw-10, it iradicates it. The review on projectorreviews.com are a re-run of the hw-10. It leaves the '10 way behind, brightness, Contrast better very good blacks after calibration, More natural looking ordinary 8bit color...Deep Color needs more content.
Summary: It is a really good machine but I do have to say when I press the on button it warms up and it takes 3-4 minutes now moving over from TVs where it is 1-2 seconds it kinda of sucks same with shutting down it takes awhile to power down.
Summary: Comments about Sony BRAVIA VPL-HW15 Home Cinema Projector: Got it for my new Media room, could not have found anythig better. Have always loved Sony. I currently have a KDL EX700. The quality of the picture on this projector is comparable or even better.[...]
Pros: Easy To Setup, Energy Efficient, Good Remote
Summary: I've had a projection setup for several years now, and this is my 4th projector. So while I'm not a real video expert, I've gotten enough experience to have a pretty good take - and this Sony VPL-HW15 is a pretty sweet unit.
Summary: Wow. We bought a 104" screnn, and I had tried to get the Viewsonic 1080, but they have been discontinued, so I went with the next best- Sony. I am new as this is my first projector, but wow. Easy install from the ceiling.
Summary: Installed projector in early Oct09 and was amazed with the quality of the picture. This is my 3rd Sony (1st was hs51 and then hs60). They were impressive in their day and wowed my friends with the size and quality of the images.
Summary: I've bought Sony VPL-HW15 recently, and wow ! This is my fourth projection since 1996, so I have a lot of experience in projections. My first one was also a Sony ( 480 x 320 pixels ) back in 1996 and had a standard halogen lamp of 50W...
Summary: I just received it today ( I currently have 2 other projectors, and this is replacing my Sanyo Z3 which is quite nice). The picture, brightness, contrast, and colors look amazing. I mean really, they are movie theater quality.
Summary: The picture projected by the Sony VPLHW15 is awesome. I cannot think of any negatives about this projector with a couple of minor exceptions - the hook-ups are located on the side rather than the back of the projector, and the remote and the projector itself are quite large.
