Sony VPL-VW 80


Exceptional motion clarity., Automatic lens-protection., Flexible positioning., Sharp, contrast-rich picture., Comprehensive picture-adjustment options.

Sony VPL-VW80 review


Sony's latest high-spec SXRD projector is easy on the eye, but can it fight off the cutthroat competition?

Excellent overall picture quality ; Great design ; Features galore ; Runs quietly

Motion Enhancement system needs work ; A third HDMI would have been nice

A fantastically talented projector, but it's probably still worth waiting it out for a price drop...

Sony VPL-VW80 review


This Sony delivers in droves in every aspect we'd demand in a home cinema projector – it's a must view

Smart looks and good spec ; very simple to set-up and use ; impressive colour palette ; smooth motion ; strong black levels

Other than being rather big and expensive, nada

Delivers in droves in every aspect we'd demand in a home cinema projector – a must view, if you're in this market
