Sony 4K Projector


from LA, CA

Comments about Sony ES Series 4K Home Theater Projector:

I just installed the Sony projector. It is a large step up from my prior Qualia 004, but the build quality is not nearly as good as the Qualia, giving a much cheaper overall look and feel. My biggest disappointment is to just have purchased such an expensive unit to find out several days later that Sony announced the far superior HDMI 2.0 and made it a free software update on several of it's 4K televisions. When I asked about the very necessary update of the Projector, Sony replied that the firmware for the projector was not yet available, that new firmware would have to be installed when ready for which Sony would make a charge, and of course all of the work in installing the projector on the ceiling and all of the fine adjustments etc will have to be recalibrated once the HDMI 2.0 is available. I find this immediate outdating of such a high end and expensive product unacceptable. I would recommend waiting to purchase until the 2.0 firmware is already installed. I am however very pleased with the performance of the projector in 108i and 1080p, but not at a retail price of $25,000.00.

from Chicago

Comments about Sony ES Series 4K Home Theater Projector:

Sony doesn't mention that this projector doesn't support external anamorphic lens future. Zooming is not the same as external anamorphic lens. I hope Sony will fix this, otherwise pro users will be disappointed.

Comments about Sony ES Series 4K Home Theater Projector:

So looking beyond the deep blue waters it is hard to imagine the future and just how much better it possibly could get from here. The 1000ES has surpassed all of my expectations. Sure many will say it is expensive but when has being on the cutting edge of technology been cheap? With the 1000ES finding the "sweet spot" is just not necassary. The front row looks just as good as the back row! Now the only "sweet spot" is either by the rest room or the popcorn machine. The term "Screen Door Effect" is now extinct with the 1000ES. The best seat in the house is any seat. The Sony VPL-VW1000ES has proved there definitely is a next level beyond 1080p. At least we will be ready when Blu ray 4K shows up. Until then we can still enjoy the first rate eye candy of the 1000ES. No matter where you sit the 1000ES puts you either in the MOVIE or at the GAME! I was just telling Jaclyn it's been awhile since I've seen a night and day difference. Probably not since 720p to 1080p. Well, here it is...
