Sony VPL-HW65ES Projector Review

Read Here


“The main use of the HW65ES will be in cinema rooms or normal living rooms so it needs to be able to produce acceptable images in both types of room. The one negative we do have with the performance of the Sony is the black levels in a bat cave environment. The blacks are a little light in such surroundings with a lack of shadow detail in the lowest reaches of the image. This was most noticeable with movies like Crimson Peak where scenes are set against very dark surroundings and some detail was lost on the HW65ES that was visible with more depth on our reference JVC X700. Of course there is quite a difference in price points between the two, but it is something to be aware of and test for if you plan on using the Sony in a bat cave. In normal living room surroundings (light colour walls and ceilings) we don’t think that issue will be as noticeable as the black floor level will be raised in such surroundings and the projector is pretty bright which also has an effect on the ultimate low-end performance.”
