Sony VPL-VW200 review: Sony VPL-VW200

 

Sony VPL-VW200

This projector has exceptional color fidelity. It produces a deep shade of black with excellent shadow detail. It also has a superb feature package, including panel alignment and blacking, and it has solid connectivity.

Expensive; some loss of resolution because of the scaler; MotionFlow dejudder processing creates artifacts and makes film look more like video; no horizontal lens shift.

Although it certainly costs more than most of the 1080p competition, the SXRD-based Sony VPL-VW200 delivers one of the best pictures of any projector we've tested.

Sony VPL VW200 SXRD Video Projector

 

Introduction Sony's latest top-of-the-line front projector effectively replaces the company's original flagship SXRD projector, the Qualia 004. The new VPL-VW200 is not only superior in performance to the original statement piece, but also half its...

UltimateAVmag.com: Sony VPL-VW200 SXRD Video Projector

 

No one imagined two years ago that the cost of acquiring a high quality 1080p projector would drop to the levels many of them sell for todaylevels, it could be argued, that were driven by Sony's own extremely competitive pricing, especially on the $5K...

Pristine sharpness and natural detail, ? Color is as accurate as it gets, ? Very good black level and contrast ratio with the manual iris, ? Super quiet

Advanced (auto) Iris produces incredible peak contrast numbers, but with brightness compression and some noticeable pumping, ? Adequately bright, but the maximum light output may not be sufficient for very large screens, ? Expensive in today's...

s The Sony VPL-VW200 is ready to compete. It offers superb performance, together with an exceptional set of features. Some of these are best left off, but others can provide genuine picture improvements

Sony VPL-VW200 SXRD Video Projector

 

The new VPL-VW200 ($14,999) follows on the heels of the VPL-VW100 "Ruby." The VPL-VW200 is now the flagship of Sony's third generation of SXRD projectors, competing not only against competing designs from other manufacturers but also against its less...

Sony Bravia SXRD VPL-VW200 Projector

 

If you've got money to burn, Sony's VPL-VW200 projector will happily lighten your wallet or purse.

In fact, Sony claims to have got the pixel ‘pitch' (how far the pixels are apart) down to an incredibly small level for the VW200, a fact which should mean you get a perfectly smooth picture that doesn't suffer with ‘blanking lines' or the so-called...

Sony VPL-VW200 review

 

This feature-rich, high-end SXRD projector features every video processing trick

HDMI v1.3 connectivity ; Exceptionally quiet ; Good, basic image quality

Too many of its features seem to make pictures worse rather than better

Quiet and capable of some great pictures, this projector is let down by some frustrating features

Sony VPL-VW200 home theatre projector

 

An already excellent HD1080 projector achieves new heights by the additional of MotionFlow video processing that actually works.

Excellent colour and black level performance ; Excellent standard video processing ; Motionflow’ enhanced video Processing ; Negative ; No ‘force film mode' option ; Dynamic iris a little too aggressive ; WARRANTY: One year (lesser of 500 hours or one...

No ‘force film mode' option ; Dynamic iris a little too aggressive ; WARRANTY: One year (lesser of 500 hours or one year free lamp replacement, 50%discount on replacement lamp between 501 and 1500 hours within warranty year) ; PROJECTION TECHNOLOGY: 3...

Forgetting about Motionflow, this is an excellent projector in every way. With Motionflow, the Sony VPL-VW200 is, for the moment, unique in what it can deliver in terms of moving picture resolution.
