Excellent overall color, and especially skin tones
Overall, a very impressive projector. It's not the right one for my room, and my tastes (which include lots of sports with intentional ambient light present), but it might be a great projector for you, especially if movies are really your "focus".
Excellent gaming performance
With the VPL-VW95ES, Sony has another winner on their hands. This premium projector emphasizes picture quality first and foremost, and every other aspect of the projector is constructed to complement the picture on the screen. While features like powered adjustments, Picture Position, and Motion Enhancer are helpful, they are not the reason why someone would buy this projector.
Excellent set up flexibility
The VW95ES is a huge leap forward over the disappointing VW90, to the point where its 2D performance is so stunning that it does enough in itself to justify the hefty Â£5,000 price tag. Crucially, though, the VW95ES is also a very enjoyable and accomplished 3D performer - even if Sony still has a little way to go before it fully silences its crosstalk critics.
Excellent color, and overall picture quality, post calibration
If the VPL-VW90ES is comfortably in your budget, you are almost certainly giving it serious thought, then it seems to me to be a very reasonable value, compared to the competition. I suspect plenty of you shopping in this range will select the VW90ES, for those reasons above. That's why there's a Hot Product Award now attached to the Sony VPL-VW90ES projector.
Excellent build quality, Superb 2D performance
JVC's DLA-X3 really does represent a significant stumbling block for the VW90ES. For the bottom line is that the X3 produces a better 3D performance than its Sony rival, as well as at least as arresting a 2D performance, while costing the best part of two grand less.
Sure, Sony's integrated 3D approach is more elegant, and it offers better PC support. And to be absolutely clear about this, it is a quite brilliant 2D performer.
Terrific 2D performance, low operational noise
Overall, the VPL-VW90ES should be considered a marvellous projector. It's beautifully built and delivers both corking 2D and genuinely involving three-dimensional imagery. In fact, so much so that, having lived with it for a while, I find it difficult to imagine ever being satisfied with regular 3D TV again.
Motorised lens makes set-up easy
For the money-no-object, 3D-early-adopter, look no further; and for everyone else it remains mighty tempting.
Deep blacks and vivid colours, Artefact-free 3D viewing experience
Sony's first 3D projector is a high-end treat. The SXRD light engine is as sharp as a sushi knife, and we didn't spot any picture-spoiling 3D crosstalk effects. If you really want to watch 3D movies at home, you need to buy one of these.
Excellent CFI for smooth motion on movies
If the budget fits and you are into 3D, the Mitsubishi HC9000D will make an excellent overall choice. I believe in two to three more years, today's 3D projector owners will be wanting the improvements yet to come and will be ready to upgrade. If that sounds reasonable to you, start looking for an installing dealer. This one is easy to live with.
Mitsubishi's HC9000D has all of the hallmarks of a great home theater projector: high contrast, impeccable color, and the versatility to adapt to almost any theater environment and thrive there. The fact that it is a 3D projector just adds to the allure. The HC9000D is as future-proof as projectors are likely to get in the near future, and is capable of doing justice to any and all content you want to watch. We are pleased to give it our highest recommendation.
Dual HDMI inputs, as well as a 12-volt trigger and an RS-232 port.
The field of 3D projectors has gotten a lot more crowded since Mitsubishi first introduced the HC9000D, and this projector faces some stiff competition from lower-priced models from JVC, Sony, Optoma, Epson, Panasonic, and Mitsubishi itself. The JVC DLA-X3 immediately comes to mind as a similarly featured D-ILA projector that comes in at a lower price point.
3D performance is very good
Overall, the Mitsubishi delivers very good performance, although the color gamut accuracy isnâ?? t very good (green and yellow are way beyond the limits of the HDTV color gamut standard). The 230W lampâ?? s output should be sufficient for most home theater setups, and the quality of the optics is excellent. While the 3D performance is very good indeed, thereâ?? s no 2D-to-3D upconversion function, an omission that might be of concern to hard-core 3D fans who want to watch everything in 3D.
Epson has a true winner on their hands with the 8500UB. Aside from its dull exterior and sometimes distracting auto-iris noises, I'm hard pressed to find anything negative to say about this projector. I love it. That this level of video performance is available for less than $2,500 is, in a word, astounding.
