With VPL-HW40ES, Sony has hit the right mark as far as price is concerned in their front projectors line up to stay well ahead of the competition. The rough price anywhere less than $3,000 is a pretty good deal for projectors in the industry.
This time at just $2,500 VPL-HW40ES is just the right kind of projector that one’s looking for when it comes to performance and affordability.
Hardware and Design
Sony has stick to the same general design used for its projectors line for several years now. The case of the projector is designed in such a way that it keeps the noise minimum. In fact, when compared with the “big three” projectors in the same price range (Epson and JVC being the other 2), Sony VPL-HW40ES turned out to be the quietest of all. The design of the case even looks more impressive as there is a pack of small fans fit inside to cool the big hot lamp in the projector.
