Still, this doesn't stop the spectacular Sony in its bid for greatness. Offering superb 4K and HDR picture quality, it's as cutting edge as projectors come. Well, you'd expect as much given its near-£9,000 price tag. This device has got ‘a movie...

When an £8800 3D-compatible projector doesn't come with any 3D glasses, though, it's a bit like breaking the bank for a paintball session and then being charged extra for pellets. Okay, so glasses are pretty cheap these days for those who enjoy the 3D...

The Sony VW520ES is the latest native 4K (4096 x 2160) SXRD projector from the company and replaces the outgoing VPL-VW500ES which was released in late 2013. If you own the VW500 your first question will likely be about upgrading and if it is worth it...

We've long admired Sony's 4K SXRD projectors, but with the VPL-VW520ES the brand has raised the bar higher still. It remains to be seen just how important the addition of HDR is as a consumer selling point, but on this first outing, with test footage,...

I've always been a big advocate for home theatre projectors. I understand that not everyone has the space to accommodate one at home, but if you have a light-controlled living room or a spare bedroom, why wouldn't you want to turn it into a true home...

Given that Sony has had several years lacking competition on 4K/UHD front projectors, we should be thankful that with the VPL-VW520ES they've done such a fine job of it. And furthermore, when other vendors do come on stream (TI's UHD DMD chips are being...

Sony VPL-VW520ES hands-on Today new generations of projector's tend to be iterative steps forward from what went before. A little bit more contrast here, a touch more brightness there. With the VPL-VW520ES, though, Sony appears to have taken a...

Har du lagt märke till att din lokala biograf har fått betydligt bättre bildkvalitet den senaste tiden? Då har de förmodligen bytt till en ny projektor! Biobranschen är nämligen plågsamt medveten om att den måste köra på om den ska behålla försprånget...
