Sony VPL-VW85 Projector Review

Projector reviews
4 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Click to enlarge so close Nice! The Sony VW85 is a great projector. It’s extremely well balanced. It’s not without minor flaws, but technically, it’s well done and puts a great picture up on the screen. You’ll be spending something approaching $8000 and you have a right to expect an excellent picture, and the Sony VPL-VW85 will deliver. Even the remote control is particularly excellent.
  • Pros: Excellent Color with particularly good skin tones (with a hint of too much red), Slightly above average brightness in “best” movie mode, Superb black level performance, Very good shadow detail performance, If not using the dynamic iris, manual iris allows you to dial down brightness for smaller screen, which in turn increases contrast and black level performance slightly., Excellent Color with particularly good skin tones (with a hint of too much red), Slightly above ...

Sony VPL-VW85 SXRD Projector Review

Audio Video Revolution
6 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Not long ago, projecting an image large enough to fill anything bigger than an 80” screen required purchasing a CRT (cathode ray tube) projector that weighed as much as a Smart Car and who only an investment banker could afford.  Those CRT projectors projected film-like images with wonderful lush colors and excellent contrast, but they were slowly replaced with digital projectors weighing and costing one forth as much.

Sony VPL-VW85

TechRadar UK
24 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Sony's VPL-VW85, a three-panel SXRD (LCoS) projector, is the successor to the brand's very well-received mid-price VW80, and, with a barnstorming performance both in our Tech Labs and on the test bench, it looks set to become a key figure in the home cinema market.
