Sony VPL-VW90ES Projector Warranty
3/14/2011 - Art Feierman
The Sony VPL-VW90ES projector comes with a two year, parts and labor warranty.
Two year warranties are pretty much the standard for 1080p projectors, with some models offering three and a number of low-cost models, offering only one year.
Three year warranties will be found on some home theatre projectors. Optoma offers three years on some of their more expensive models, Epson on their Pro Cinema series, such as the 9700UB, and Sharp provides 3 years, on their two sub-$2000 home theater projectors, the PLV-Z4000 and the PLV-Z700.
There might even be some one year warranties up around this $10,000 price point, although I can't think of any, off the top.
Other 1080p home theater projectors with 2 year warranties include all the Mitsubishi projectors, , the Epson Home Cinema series featuring the HC8350 and the HC8700UB (with replacement programs for both years), plus, most of the mid-priced Optomas...
The more commercial 3D projector, though it's finding its way into home theaters I'm told, - the CF3D by LG, with it's $15,000 price point, also comes with a 2 year parts and labor warranty.
Bottom line: There are better warranties, and worse ones, but the Sony VPL-VW90ES warranty is pretty much in the middle of the pack, and most typical one for this class of projector.
