Cons:

  • Could be a little brighter for 3D – A statement I've said about almost every 3D projector so far. In fairness, this is the brightest 3D capable home theater projector anywhere near its price, that we've reviewed to date, although there are some twice as b

Those seeking the visual equivalent of fine-dining are traditionally best served at a 4K digital cinema. An eight-million pixel image, spread large and bristling with detail, is a feast for the eyes befitting the planet's premiere cinemas. But now...

Sony have something of a history of being ahead of the curve when it comes to launching products that incorporate new technology. As an example, the Qualia 004 was a 1080p projector that was available long before we had any high definition content to...

The idea of futureproofing is an attractive one, and it's all to the fore in the , a projector that's more about 4K capability than the 3D it also delivers.What’s 4K? Well, it's all about ultra-high definition, but at the moment it’s a loose term...

With the Sony VPL-VW1000ES 4K projector, the Japanese brand has taken the concept of domestic cinema and quadrupled it. Offering a resolution of 4096 x 2160, this is the first consumer projector able to rival the clarity of cutting edge digital...

If you're shopping in this price range for a new projector, the Sony VPL-VW1000 should definitely be on your short list. If 3D is not an important target on your radar, that's all you need to know. If you're big on 3D, you need to accept the fact that...

With sub-$10,000 projectors offering the sort of performance they do today, the high-end home theater market is reaching for new worlds to conquer. 4K projection appears to be the obvious answer, and the Sony VPL-VW1000ES delivers the goods—at least in...

One of the "gotta see" events at CEDIA were the 4K projectors on hand. Now these weren't commercial theater products. Companies like Sony Electronics were releasing home theater products that bring the 4K experience to the home. That means that their...

Надо отдать должное компании Sony, которая не побоялась вывести на потребительский рынок проектор с разрешением 4К в тот момент, когда конечному пользователю еще фактически недоступны источники и, самое главное, контент с таким разрешением. Впрочем,...

Vermits er nog geen 4K-standaard is voor content en je die voorlopig enkel via HDMI vanaf een pc kan aanleveren, is het de vraag of Sony niet wat vroeg komt met deze projector. Een 4K-projector met 3D die zelfs het DCI-kleurbereik kan gebruiken, lijkt...

Maken till biobild har du knappast sett förut. Den enorma och svindyra Sony-projektorn är nämligen kapabel till att – på ett sofistikerat sätt – öka upplösningen från Blu-ray-filmernas 1920 x 1080 till 4096 x 2160 pixlar. För att sätta siffrorna i...

Ser vi bort fra fraværet af CMS, så er manglen på 4K-indhold Sony-projektorens akilleshæl. Der findes kort og godt ikke let tilgængeligt indhold i 4K-opløsning, og man er prisgivet projektorens egen 4K-opskalering, som dog ikke er nogen dårlig affære....

Trois détails qui fâchent : les dimensions de l'appareil, l'absence de système de gestion des couleurs et le prix. Cela vaut malgré tout le coup de passer outre, tant le rendu de l'upscaling 4K est extraordinaire et la 3D renversante. Nous avons...
