Sony VPL-HW10 LCoS Projector

Conclusion

The Sony VPL-HW10 is an excellent entry-level 1080p front projector. It allows for flexible placement, and produces a surprisingly bright picture for an entry-level LCoS design, making it well suited in a non-dedicated room. Compared to the Sanyo PLZ-2000 and HC 5500, the Sony is more costly, but to my eyes it produced a more pleasing image than the LCD designs. Of course, that is a subjective opinion, as bench tests showed fairly minor differences between the performance of the Sony, Sanyo and Mitsubishi projectors. As always, you should take a test drive before you buy, since personal preferences vary widely.
