Sony VPL-VW40

18 July 2008
  • Summary: We had our doubts about whether Sony could really translate its undoubtedly impressive SXRD technology down to the sub-£2,500 level. Thankfully, all of the things that make SXRD special really are present on the entry-level VPL-VW40, even if there are one or two little imperfections in other areas
  • Pros: Exceptional picture sharpness; impressively little video noise; great design; decent price.
  • Cons: Colours can look washed out; the image isn't very bright.

  • Conclusion: Sony VPL-VW40 vs. Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema 1080 UB Epson最新的1080p投影机Pro Cinema 1080UB,获得了我们最高的赞誉以及一个编辑选择奖用以褒奖其杰出的性能和价值。以1080 UB和Sony VW40之间不到1000美元的价格差异,看看两者如何挑战对方是很有趣的事。 流明输出。 Epson 1080 UB是市场上可以买到的最亮的1080p投影机之一,其最高流明输出为1600ANSI流明。在为全黑间家庭影院进行较准之后,1080 UB依然可以产生470ANSI流明,这个数值仍然比Sony在其最亮模式下所能产生的更多。...
