Summary: Personal Experience I have owned the vpl hw-10 and the 15 . I also owned the vw-100 the pro 1 is the best value for the money I have ever seen. The 10 and 15 are also amazing projectors. The pro1 just takes it to the next level. It makes it very difficult to shell out the extra dough for a top end model. I own a Panasonic 65 vt25 witch is the best flat panel available. The pro1 gives the Panasonic a very tough time. Not to mention I am running a 110 inch vutec pro.
