A very good value proposition, especially among DLP projectors
All considered though, it is a fairly elegant projector. No rough edges that I've noticed so far. And don't forget you can go wide screen, thanks to lens memory.
While this Sharp XV-Z30000 may seem very similar to a few other projectors, personally, I'd choose it over two of it's closest competitors - the Optoma HD8300 and the Mitsubishi HC7800D, for my own use.
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.
As well as succeeding where its predecessor did not in justifying its price hike over Sony's latest entry-level SXRD model, the VW85 sets a really high new standard for the Â£5,000 sector of the projector market. Will JVC's new D-ILA models manage to be even better? Well, sadly I just don't know right now. But man, it's going to be fun finding out.
Balance of high resolution, excellent data image quality
The 7700FullHD's balance of high resolution, excellent data image quality, and brightness is more than enough to make it worth considering as a data projector for a large room or small auditorium. On the other hand, the 7700FullHD is the wrong choice if you need to show much video. And the relatively short lamp life can raise total cost of ownership.
That said, if you don't expect to show much video, and you don't mind the short lamp life, there's a lot here to like.
