Sony VPL-VW 80

  • Conclusion: With its many attractive picture-improvement technologies, the Sony VW 80 will appeal mainly to home-theater enthusiasts. The projector inserts black frames between the pictures of the original signal, making motion and camera pans look so Samurai-sharp that no other projector can compete. Criticism does go to the limited brightness, the slight flicker, and the sometimes over-jolly colors. Overall, both the feature set and picture quality are highly satisfactory.
  • Pros: Exceptional motion clarity., Automatic lens-protection., Flexible positioning., Sharp, contrast-rich picture., Comprehensive picture-adjustment options.
  • Cons: Limited brightness., Colors and color management fall short of perfection., Average standard signal processing.

  • Summary: If money makes the world go round, buying a VW80 risks slowing the Earth’s rotation so that days last approximately 36 hours. Which only gives more sweet, sweet night-time to enjoy this cinema-beating projector’s sumptuous visuals.

What Hi-Fi?
3 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Weighing in at some 12kg – and a wallet-slimming £4500 – the Sony VPL-VW80, part of Sony's Bravia range, is clearly not planning on doing things by halves. Thanks to a flattering black finish and plenty of curves in the right places, this substantial proposition carries its bulk well, but you'll still need a 47x48cm space on which to plonk it. You'll find two HDMI inputs – it's a Full HD resolution projector – plus component, S-Video and composite video connections.
  • Pros: Smart looks and good spec, very simple to set-up and use, impressive colour palette, smooth motion, strong black levels
  • Cons: Other than being rather big and expensive, nada

  • Conclusion: Sony har aldri laget en bedre projektor, etter vårt skjønn. VW80 er en aldeles utmerket projektor uten kalibrering, men med kalibrering forvandles bildekvaliteten fra glimrende til strålende. Man skal lete lenge etter bedre skarphet, og få projektorer har samme sømløse overganger og panoreringer. Skal vi ønske oss noe i neste generasjon SXRD-projektorer fra Sony, må det være mer nøytral fargegjengivelse. Men etter kalibrering ble resultatet nær 100 prosent optimalt.
