Sony VPL-HW30ES Home Theater Projector Review
Sony VPL-HW30ES Sharpness
Same old – same old. Sony’s been feeding us a great many projectors over the years, going back to the VPL-VW50, that have used this lens
Overall, the Sony provides a very sharp image. How well it converges is a final factor, that will affect the bottom line. The HW30ES I’m working with did need the red to be shifted to the left, and up, a pixel. That improved the overall sharpness, but only slightly, as expected. (Red was almost a pixel off horizontaly, before correction.
Even before adjustment, you could not see any pixel shift from normal seating distances, unless you like squinting at white credits on a black background.
