Sony VPL-HW65ES Home Theater Projector Review

Posted on March 6, 2016 by Art Feierman
The "Evolution is Upon Us." Sony's VPL-HW65ES offers a number of improvements over the HW55ES - its rather excellent predecessor - which was a Best In Class award winner in last year's Best Home Theater Projectors report.  This projector is an evolutionary advance - nothing truly revolutionary about it. Although the VPL-HW65ES officially lists for $3999, we treat it as an under $3500 projector, because we try to position projectors based on street pricing, not on list.  It will be included in our $2000 - $3500 price class in our annual Best Projectors Report.  Although there doesn't seem to be much discounting, the HW65ES comes with a spare lamp which we factor in.
