C'est sur qu'avec ces quelques commentaires, cela donne envie
Bon, reste à voir les dimensions du bouzin (réduction en longueur, mais de combien ????) pour qu'il rentre dans mon buffet. Mais je regrette vraiment que le focus ne soit pas motorisé....
Contrast/Black Levels: As mentioned, the unit is rated at 15000:1 on/off contrast like the VW40 (with iris). However, the VW40 tended to fall short of that. Well not the case with the HW10. In fact, a very rare occurrence happened. I got 16995:1 on/off! More than the rated contrast! Kudos to Sony on being conservative…it was a breath of fresh air. ANSI was quite good as well. I got about 342:1…amongst the best for this generally technology that I have measured. The black levels on the HW10 were quite good, rivaling that of the JVC DLA-RS1X. Plus, with the near elimination of bright corners, the affect is quite impressive.
Light Output: The HW10 is rated at 800 lumens. Now here is something that many manufacturers hype up and don’t deliver. Of course, I always rate them at D65 so rarely do they fully output the rated specs. BUT, the Sony, at D65 still put out a max light output of 616 lumens. This is a definite improvement as well, and allows this to work in rooms with larger screens (or those with some ambient light). Excellent.
Colors: As I mentioned before, this was near perfect out of the box. I was able to get it slightly dialed in better, but even without that adjustment, this is a big benefit to the HW10 vs. some of its competition. Again, kudos.
Sharpness: Is it ever! Seriously, this was an area that stood out for me immediately. It is very sharp and probably the best I have seen as compared to other similar technologies. I have to check my facts, but I am pretty sure it is in part to the new panels which are digitally drive (I will try and confirm). In any event, love this part a lot.
