This model has been replaced by the Sony VPL-HW15

Having taken a look at the Sony VPL-HW10 we are more than impressed with it especially at its price point as we have seen a couple of 1080p units of recent times which are selling for more than the HW10 that in our opinion would be blown away by the HW10.!!

The black levels on the VPL-HW10 are extremley impressive. Colours are natural and for us needed no adjustments - you can simply unbox, plug in, turn on and enjoy!  Horizontal and vertical lens shift coupled with a more than decent zoom range and great black levels makes the HW10 the 1080P projector to beat at this price point.

Dont just take our word for it come and check it out for yourself in our demo room.
