SONY VW885ES / VW760ES : In Depth Review & Comparisons



UPDATE:

USER MANUAL:

SONY VPL-VW760ES VPL-VW885ES USER MANUAL


Superlative native 4K picture quality with a laser light source - in a compact projector

It’s an unforgettable experience, whatever you’re watching. An ideal choice for your home cinema room, the VPL-VW885ES / VPL-VW760ES brings movies to life with extraordinary cinematic detail, color and contrast.

This compact projector combines an advanced laser light source with the same 4K SXRD panel technology found in Sony's professional cinema projectors.

Crisply detailed native 4K images (4096 x 2160) offer four times the resolution of Full HD, pulling you right into the heart of the action with /forum/86-ult...lunprecedented clarity. You’ll experience fabulously rich cinematic colors, smooth motion and spectacular contrast.

Generous 2,000 lumen brightness assures vibrant images, even in well-lit rooms. The ultra-pure, highly efficient laser light source delivers consistent image brightness, without the gradual drop-off in light levels experienced with lamps. You’ll also enjoy reduced operating costs compared with conventional projection systems, and less worry of sudden lamp failure during the show. You’re futureproofed with compatibility for the latest 4K standards, including High Frame Rates and HDR (High Dynamic Range) - so you’ll get the very best out of today’s content, and tomorrow’s.

With flexible installation due to its compact size, simple setup, fuss-free auto calibration and low-noise operation, the VPL-VW885ES / VPL-VW760ES 4K Home Cinema Projector puts you in control of the ultimate entertainment experience.

Come on then, get us some calibrated measurements already!

EDIT: I'm particularly keen to see measurements for:

1. Calibrated max lumens
2. Calibrated Native on/off contrast at highest light output - (if the laser shuts off completely on a pure black screen, then measured using a test pattern that illuminates at least one pixel)
3. Calibrated dynamic on/off contrast at highest light output - (using the same one pixel test pattern, if necessary)
4. P3 coverage percentage
5. General assessment of edge-to-edge lens sharpness (both pixel peeping and from seating distance)
6. Comment on convergence uniformity
7. Measured running noise at the highest light output (C-weighted, at 1m in front of lens)
8. Average sync/handshake time (i.e. to lock onto an incoming video signal)

Looking forward to your honest assessment Arrow, take your time and hurry up. I expect many more will soon follow up on the heals of your review, the "bigger picture" soon to be corroborated by many.

I'm most interested in the brightness . If it's where I expect, I'm going to lower my gain, run a ST130 or ST100 material . I only need to match what I have already for brightness, will be more than happy
in my 'average" home theater setting using a 132" scope screen .

I liked the motorized lens cover that the 1100es had.
Will most likely see it on the 985es next year along with the 1100es lens.

Looking at the photos, I noticed that Sony didn't include one pair of 3D glasses.
My 1100es came with them, but the 675es didn't.
Guess the $1.98 was too much to spend on including them.
You would think that for $25K they would have put a few in with the projector.
But then the Sony 3D glasses are so cheep and uncomfortable, might as will just go a buy some good ones.

Maybe you need to step up to the VW5000 at $59,000.00 to get the free 3D glasses.

Well, if he only managed to take it out of the box tonight, probably not even mounted yet. Ekki from Cine4home will have his on Friday, Id expect a number of reports
to corroborate numbers over the next week. Who will be the first ?

I don't think the $36,000 RS4500 comes with 3D glasses, actually you have to buy the emitter too as I recall .

Don't worry, it's going to be a long night here in Blighty...

Currently taking photo of bottom for @SJHT then I'll be getting this baby operational... Time to get this party started!

As luck would have it both my Colorimetry Research CR-300-H spectroradiometer and Klein 10-A colorimeter are on their way back from the United States both having undergone servicing and recalibration so I don't have either of these here at the moment... However, I have another decent profiled colorimeter that I can use (Spectracal C6 HDR) which I keep handy as a backup; plus I have the rest of my kit including my Konica Minolta T-10A Certified Illuminance Meter, and other kit. My spectro is due to be delivered tomorrow but that's too late!

Sleep? Who needs sleep? I'm currently running on about two hours sleep from last night, I figure I'll get all the sleep I need when I'm dead... Suffice to say I ain't sleepin' 'til I have this thing operational and take some measurements, so watch this space...

Wow, you are really going to set up and test tonight ? Many of us will be waiting for any and all results, very grateful indeed. We may owe you a few pints once this is all over .
