Front Projection

I currently have the Sony VPL-VW50 projector which is usually referred to as the "Pearl" which I believe was it's internal development name.  It is the Third Sony SXRD projector in a series that started with the Qualia $35,000 1080p projector of 2 years ago.  Last year this was replaced by the "Ruby" (VW100) at about $7500 and I finally broke down and got this years "Pearl" at $4200.  An order of magnitude decrease in price in 2 years.   All of these feature SXRD (liquid crystal on silicon =LCOS) display panels and active IRIS systems for deep black level capabilities.  The native 1920x1080 panels offer true HD resolution and it shows.  This projector throws an incredible image.

It has 2 HDMI inputs that match up with my new Toshiba XA1 HD-DVD player and my existing HTPC using MCE.  I've had no trouble at all with the HDMI/HDCP connections.  The Pearl is almost completely silent in operation.

HD-DVD's on this projector throw the best images I've ever seen on anything at any price.


In 2008 I got a Sony Playstation 3 for Blu-Ray playback primarily but it looks fantastic for games on the HDTV.  HDMI output.
