Sony VPL–VW100 review

PriceRunner
23 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Sony’s VW100 is one of the most expensive and stylish HD projectors around. But can the tech giant’s model see off the challenges of the smaller players? Hmm?
  • Pros: With an advanced iris to automatically adjust light levels and a stonking 15,000:1 contrast ratio, the Sony VPL–VW100 undoubtedly has the edge on its competitors on test. It packs Sony’s own unique SXRD tech (Silicon X–Tal Reflective Display), meaning this projector is LCD rather than DLP based. This does not have a negative effect on pictures however. In fact, it creates judder–free images that look simply stunning. And let’s be honest… nobody likes judder.
  • Cons: DLP projectors are generally better at producing deeper blacks and purer whites and while the difference is often minimal, it is notable here. Watching the early scenes of Quantum of Solace were not as dark as they could have been, although it must be said that this is only an issue when put up against the likes of the InFocus and Sanyo models. Light adjustments can also cause some jumpy effects, although again this is not a deal breaker.
