"An excellent proposition for film buffs who want a compelling, cinematic picture for their Blu-ray collection" What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2016

Sony's advanced SXRD panels and advanced Iris 3 technology for brilliant picture quality
Sony uses high frame rate SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panels with an incredibly rapid response rate. This gives the VPL-HW65ES smooth, fluid motion that's faster and more stable than typical LCD TVs. Partnering this advanced panel system is Contrast Enhancer and advanced Iris3. This automatically optimises the contrast level by analysing dark and light sections of the image in every scene.

High contrast and improved brightness for vibrant images
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 a dynamic contrast ratio of 120,000:1, this Sony effortlessly produces inky blacks for exceptional depth of image. With its improved brightness level of 1800 lumen, the VPL-HW65ES is better than ever in lighter environments.

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 even when viewing DVDs, with Reality Creation you get closer to 1080p resolution, whatever the source.

Motionflow technology
Unique to Sony is Motionflow technology. This technology 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 VPHW65ES 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-HW65ES 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-HW65ES all but inaudible in most environments.

Entertain on a big scale, with the immersive Sony VPL-HW65ES.

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The most impressive Full HD projector for under £3k Very pleased with the bright sharp image this produces. Excellent motion handling and Reality Creation enhances the picture nicely if used sensibly. Black level is very good and shadow detail decent. The Sony gives a very natural and filmic image with pixel structure invisible unless you put your nose to the screen!. For 3d viewing, fortunately my existing Sony tv glasses work as Sony provide none. 3d performance is ok but not as good as the Epson TW9200. The latter is flicker free and stable whereas the Sony, while decent, is not so comfortable to view. Low gaming input lag is excellent using the gaming mode. Fan noise is inaudible in Eco mode and very quiet in high lamp mode. The big negative is Eco mode, which is useless as the picture flickers badly after a short period of time. This appears to be a common issue that Sony are cagey about addressing. I prefer the high lamp mode for the brighter picture but I would seriously consider returning it otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent projector Looks amazing and is bright enough to use in normal rooms without blackout. Picture is stunning out of the box. Also very quiet- PS4 is louder. Got excellent service from Josh and the team at Chelsea.
