HD Ready and then some

  • Summary: I saw this PJ in action last night. The source was a Sony BluRay DVD player and a BR pressing of Spiderman 2. The picture clarity was amazing. Rock solid image with (not surprisingly) incredible definition. I can't, however give it 5 stars. Perhaps the colour calibration was not perfect (altough Sony reps were on hand so "their bad" if they set it up poorly) - in particular the reds were far too prominent.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Product specs of VW100 make me scratch my head. It takes for SONY a projector weighing in at a hefty 42 pounds to output 800 measily ANSI lumens? What's up with that? This baby must win the "lumen per pound" ratio by being the heaviest anchor for its stated light output, which is really just too low these days. Also, a 0.6-inch diagonal wide screen image sensor is just too darn small. And the 610 Watt power usage is not something to sneeze at, either.

  • Summary: Personal Experience The Projector is nice, low noise, nice picture and color, because they use short arc Xenon lamp (no mercury). As I know the new lamp used on this projector had problem, such as hard start, lamp did not meet Spec., life too short. Anyway, nice projector.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Excellent colors, no SD to speak of, but image uniformity and mis-convergnce of the panels leaves me feeling a little depressed. I feel a unit at this price should not have any issues caused by poor QC. The screen when displaying full "black" also shows a "eyehole" effect, the corners are not the same intensity as the screen center. If the iris is on it also over drives the white level in the picture drasticly.

Erstklassig bei Farben und Schärfe, ABER 24p Problem

H. Hanspeter "kritischerSkeptiker", Amazon

  • Summary: Der Projektor ist inzwischen zu sehr guten Preisen erhältlich und die Bildqualität ist wirklich exzellent, vor allem die Farben lassen einen immer wieder staunen. Dazu noch die "Full-HD" Auflösung von 1920x1080, die zudem bei entsprechender Quelle ohne "Overscan" also Pixel-Perfect wiedergegeben wird. Allerdings lässt sich Sony trotz des ehemals sehr hohen Preises nicht dazu überreden, die Digitaleingänge (DVI oder HDMI) per Firmware-Update 1080/24p tauglich zu machen.
