Sony VPL-VW885ES $25,000 Review

Managing light output presented one of the more noticeable concerns I had with this new laser design. Most of the projectors I’ve used in past years featured a manual aperture/iris for dialing in the white level you want on screen exactly, while simultaneously increasing contrast as you close the iris down (due to the reduction of light scatter captured by the iris). This is a win-win scenario for any projector that delivers more light than you need, and Sony has provided this feature on all the models I’ve reviewed over the years. The VPL-VW885ES departs from this, offering no iris of any kind. Instead, a laser level control is provided with a range of 0 to 100, though the range is limited: Moving the control from 100 to 0 only reduced the light output by about half and provided no benefit to the pro-jector’s native contrast ratio (indeed, it actually lowered it slightly).”
