"Essentially, the Sony VPL-HW45ES is really, really good" What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017


SXRD panels with contrast enhancer

This Sony projector uses high frame rate SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panels, which feature an incredibly rapid response rate. This gives it smooth, fluid motion that's faster and more stable than typical LCD panels, as found in other projectors. Partnering this is Contrast Enhancer. This automatically optimises the contrast level by analysing dark and light sections of the image in every scene.

Improved brightness for vibrant images
With its improved brightness level of 1800 lumen, the VPL-HW45ES is better than ever in lighter environments. A further benefit of the SXRD panel against LCD is improved contrast. By using a superior alignment layer, less light is scattered giving greater levels of black and a better contrast ratio. With an exceptional contrast ratio, this Sony effortlessly produces inky blacks for exceptional depth of image.

Reality creation
Based on technology used in the range-topping VW1000ES model, the Super Resolution upscaler produces fine detail and vivid colour even from lower resolution signals. Ideal when watching off-air broadcasts or when viewing DVDs, with Reality Creation you get closer to 1080p resolution, whatever the source.

Motionflow technology
Unique to Sony is Motionflow technology, which produces smoother-looking motion by creating extra images between the original frames. Showing twice as many pictures per second gives the impression of much more fluid images.

Built-in 3D RF transmitter
With an industry standard 3D RF transmitter built-in, you can enjoy the pleasures of reliable, stable 3D without the need for an external transmitter. Simply purchase Sony's TDG-BT500A glasses and enjoy the immersive quality of 3D on the big screen.

New low latency mode for gaming
A brand new feature for the VPHW45ES is the low latency mode. Designed especially for gamers, this gives the fastest response possible for the most incisive gaming.

Long-lasting lamp and quiet running for ease of ownership
Two issues of projector ownership for many are lamp life and running noise. The Sony VPL-HW45ES does its best to tackle both! With an expected lamp life of approximately 6000 hours, the Sony's bulb is forecast to outlast standard projector bulbs by around 60%, making a huge difference to running costs. Thanks to an advanced cooling system, fan noise is reduced to a whisper quiet 22dB, making the Sony VPL-HW45ES all but inaudible in most environments.

A top flight performer that easily provides a true cinema experience in your home. For the full effect, just add popcorn!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb picture After watching the same scenes from a Blu-ray disc via every projector in the store I somewhat reluctantly came to the conclusion that although the Sony was 50% more expensive than its nearest rival, it was worth it. The picture was smooth, accurate and did a better job at showing subtle greys and blacks in dark moody scenes. (Projectors are generally not great at this compared to OLED TVs.) I'm hoping that after a few years I'll have forgotten the price difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous picture quality! If you have the room and lighting, forget the big tv and get this projector!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sony 45ES Projector I was looking for a replacement projector went to Richer sounds Maidstone Was helped very much by the salesman who had loads of Knowledge on projectors and showed me 2 models with no pressure no rush about a hour in all i went and had coffee and returned made my choice which was not in stock as i live 50 miles away he sent it by courier and what better than that for 1st Class service EXCELLENT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply great picture Really great picture in all of the preset modes. HD content, especially animated movies like Pixar ones, looks stunning. Blacks are nice and dark too. It's pretty quiet, even sitting directly under it you don't notice the fan noise. The only thing that could be better is performance in daylight - you really need to have a dark room to get the best out of this, but that's not unique to this projector. One missing feature is a 12V trigger jack so bear that in mind if you are desperate for your screen to drop down automatically when you turn on the projector.
