Sony VPL-VW1000ES review

 

Those seeking the visual equivalent of fine-dining are traditionally best served at a 4K digital cinema. An eight-million pixel image, spread large and bristling with detail, is a feast for the eyes befitting the planet's premiere cinemas. But now...

Astounding resolution; 4K upscaling for Blu-ray and other sources; stylish design; low operating noise; high quality optics

No source of commercial 4K video content; expensive when viewed primarily as a 2K projector

The Sony VPL-VW1000ES projector brings 4K to the home for the first time

Astonishing 4K video quality ; Great upscaling of Full HD ; Deep ; immersive 3D

No native 4K movie content ; Stratospheric price tag ; No digital still card reader

Sony VPL-VW1000ES

 

Ladies and gentlemen, the 4k AV era has arrived. Kind of.

Brilliant 3D pictures ; 4K images look insanely good ; Upscaled 2D images much better than expected

Hardly any native 4k content right now ; Black levels not as good as those from JVC’s latest projectors ; Limited colour management

Sony VPL-VW1000ES review

 

Terrific with the very limited 4K2K material available, but expensive as a conventional projector

4K2K capability ; strong contrast performance ; crisp detail ; impressive build ; ease of set-up ; quiet in use

Lack of 4K2K material ; odd choice of panel ratio ; struggles with DVD ; high price

The VPL-VW1000ES is deeply impressive with the limited amount of 4K2K material we’ve seen, but its price is on the high side when performance with established formats is considered

Sony VPL-VW1000ES review

 

It's ludicrously expensive, but a clear sign of things to come – all we need now is some 4K content

Naturally, Blu-ray films see the most improvement, but we were surprised how well the projector coped with standard definition sources. DVDs contain less than 5% of the information of a 4K video, and although we could spot noticeable noise artefacts,...

Sony VPL-VW1000ES 4K SXRD 3D Home Theater Projector Preview

 

Sony's new VPL-VW1000ES 4K home theater projector doesn't look like an air handler. No, it's elegant, as you'd expect for a $25,000 product with 4K upscaling for 2D and 3D & gazillion:1 contrast ratio

It might be the price of a VW Polo, but the VPL-VW1000ES allows you to have bragging rights to one of the first 4K home theatre projectors.

The Sony VPL-VW1000ES is available now for a cool AU$25k — or AU$24,999 if you're being pedantic.

Sony VPL-VW1000ES 4K SXRD 3D Projector: Take 2

 

In our February 2012 issue, we published an exclusive first look at Sony's new top-of-the-line projector. In addition to stunning performance with conventional, high-defintion, consumer material, the VPL-VW1000 employs 4K imaging chips, offering four...

If you’re shopping in this price range for a new projector, the Sony VPL-VW1000 should definitely be on your short list. If 3D is not an important target on your radar, that’s all you need to know. If you’re big on 3D, you need to accept the fact that...
