Sony's VPL-HW10 Gets The Hands-On Treatment
Sony's VPL-HW10 uses the same SXRD technology formerly used by the company's rear projection HDTV line. While Sony cut out its RPTV line in favor of its popular BRAVIA LCD lineup, they still use SXRD in their front projectors.
Turns out they made a good choice, as a CNET review of the VPL-HW10 proved to be a good one. The VPL-HW10, with 1920 x 1080 resolution, produces deep blacks, good shadow detail, accurate color reproduction and sports tons of features. On the not so great side: slightly inaccurate red and green reproduction, manual controls, and a subpar 1000 ANSI lumen brightness level that doesn't cut it for larger screens.
Overall though, Sony's VPL-HW10 is the company's cheapest SXRD projector, and pulled off a strong enough showing to be deemed a "very good performer for the price, and therefore an excellent value."
