Overall, the Sony VW50 is an excellent projector - especially considering the pricetag relative to other 1080p projectors.
For price/performance, for natural image (after some real adjusting), plus good brightness, silent operation, and overall, a projector that makes watching hi def content a pleasure, we are pleased to give the Sony VW50 Pearl home theater projector our Hot Product Award.
I'll go into more detail on some of these impressions, thoughout the review, but it's time to get started!
