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".
Very good placement flexibility
This is a projector that works best in a home theater environment, but can double in a light controlled family room as well. It's definitely more value than last year's VPL-VWPro1, and can easily take on the likes of the Sharp XV-Z17000, and Optoma HD8300. It's early in this home theater season, so there are more new competitors yet to review, still, the Sony VPL-HW30ES is definitely a projector worth considering. Tastefully done.
One of the least expensive 3D 1080p projectors
The VPL-HW30ES is a major milestone for Sony. Not only have they improved upon one of their best projectors in recent memory, they have done so without significantly raising the price. The end result is one of the least expensive 3D 1080p projectors currently on the market.
Very good performer
Overall, the VPL-HW30ES is a very good performer, and delivers a satisfying picture with both 2D and 3D content. It delivers sufficient brightness for an immersive front projection viewing experience, and even when in the high lamp mode, the set runs truly whisper quiet. The three year parts and labor warranty is a year or two longer than most projector warranties.
Excellent color balance and overall image with any resolution or picture mode
While we'd like to see network (and wireless as well) presentation capability, the VPL-FH30 has a solid feature set and terrific performance, all in a reasonably priced package. In addition, Sony's warranty and On-Time Support Program are among the best in the industry. If you need even more brightness, the Sony VPL-FH35 will give you another 900 (rated) lumens, albeit at a much higher price. Anyway you look at it, the Sony VPL-FH30 is well deserving of a Hot Product award.
