Sony VPL-VW95ES 3D SXRD Projector

 

The performance we've been seeing from the projector world as of late has just been astounding. Sony has been right there at the top of the heap, too, earning our Top Pick for the last three projectors we've reviewed. The company continues to push new...

While I was a bit disappointed with the focus and contrast performance of the VPL-VW95ES, that’s me: Most of my nitpicks come from being a bit of a videophile snob and probably won’t even be noticed by all but the pickiest viewer. To put it in better...

Sony VPL-VW95ES

 

We are pleased to have been working with the VPL-VW95ES for a couple of weeks, and consider it a real improvement (for a significantly lower price) compared to last year's entry

Excellent color, and overall picture quality, post calibration ; Superb black level performance with a smooth iris ; Very good CFI - smooth (some may even like with movies) ; Well above average brightness in "best" movie mode ; Reasonably bright for 3D...

Dark shadow detail could be better ; Could be brighter for 3D - A statement I've said about almost every 3D projector so far. In fairness, this is the brightest 3D capable home theater projector anywhere near its price, that we've reviewed to date,...

You'll be doing most of your watching in 2D, at least for quite some time to come, and the Sony is silky smooth for 2D with those rich blacks, and some great skin tones

Sony VPL-VW95ES review

 

Sony made it pretty clear during HCC's recent trip to Tokyo that it sees delivering uncompromising quality as the way to get its once-peerless reputation – and sales! – back. With this in mind, the crosstalk that hampered the brand's first 3D...

Well built and easy to use; runs almost silently in low lamp mode; 2D pictures are fantastic; 3D pictures are good

Still a little crosstalk with 3D; some rival models make it look expensive

Sony VPL-VW95ES review

 

Sony's VPL-VW95ES home cinema projector is a huge active 3D unit that weighs a monstrous 11kg, and you'll struggle to fit it on a coffee table. However, if you're serious about cinema and have the space, it could have everything you're looking for in a...

Serious cinema fans only need apply, but the picture quality is well worth the price of admission

Sony has finally unleashed the sequel to its flawed VW90ES 3D flagship projector. So does the new VW95ES put right what its predecessor got wrong?

Sublime 2D picture quality ; Excellent set up flexibility ; Very watchable 3D

Still some crosstalk with 3D ; Some settings are a bit complicated ; Quite a bit of brightness has to be sacrificed to get the best all-round 3D performance

Sony VPL-VW95ES hands-on

 

Who needs a puny 3D TV? Not only does the Sony VPL-VW95ES projector deliver the brightest 3D we've seen to date, but it's also drop-dead gorgeous with 2D hi-def material.

Bright, crisp 3D images ; High-contrast hi-def performance ; Comfortable active-shutter glasses

Complicated menu controls can seem intimidating ; Big and bulky

The Sony VPL-VW95ES is a wonderfully exciting hunk of hardware. Home-cinema fans will probably love what it does with 2D even more than 3D, but, either way, it's a no-compromise big-screen treat.

By class standards, it's one of the best projectors around

Excellent 2D performance, delightful to set up and use; quiet

3D performance is good, but we’d like better motion stability and less crosstalk

A trace of crosstalk with 3D Switching to 3D Blu-ray is more of a mixed bag. There’s much to admire – the sense of depth is considerable and sharpness is hard to fault.

Love this Sony 3D Projector

 

When I first bought this Sony 3D projector I didn't know what to expect. I had only read reviews which made me end up buying it. All I can say is that this 3D projector is every bit as good or better than the JVC X3 or the Epson 5010. The picture has...
