- Lacks lens memory for those who would prefer a 2.35:1 screen instead of the standard 16:9 screens
- Others offer lamps with longer claimed life (although low power is improved to 5000 hours)
- I don’t like the Reset button where it is on the remote control on around the navigation, but a single press won't get you into trouble
- Could use a third HDMI input
- Could offer wireless HDMI… No! Wait! That was a CON from last year's HW50ES. This projector has wireless HDMI, as an option!
- Projector could be brighter – I’m thinking primarily for 3D, but also for non-theater placement - still it is one of the brightest serious projectors
- Sony needs new, more comfortable, lighter weight 3D glasses - Hold on! That's what I said last year, but we've still got them as the standard, provided glasses. I recommend (but it costs) the new RF emitter. That way you can buy extremely light weight, 3rd party glasses inexpensively. Emitter works with Epson glasses, and some very low cost Samsung glasses
- White finished version not available in the US. (Most will will want the dark finish)
- A side by side, or picture in picture mode would be nice (but both are rarely found features)
- I do not believe you can use the IR glasses and RF glasses at the same time (not able to verify) Not surpassing, no one else switching from IR to RF has offered that ability to my knowledge
Everyone, that's a wrap. The only think left is the specs page.
Last thoughts: Will there be videos based on this review? Yes, by 12/20/13 If Sony does a Permission, the the videos will both be public. If not, the full length video will be only for subscribers. It will include video clips of the projector performing!
