Personal Experience
the sony vpl ex4 is a good projector but for £800 it is a bit over priced, i purchased mine second hand off ebay for £50 and it has 516 hours on the lamp.
something i have noticed that is with all of these projectors ( i know someone who bought on of these ) that they have got convergence problems and the filter system is terrible lets most of the dust through.
other than that it is easy to use and is well build but i won't be buying a sony projector again

Problems
the filter system lets most of the dust through and don't rely on the filter message as it doesn't appear.
the lamp started buzzing after a few minutes use but this did go away quickly
the convergence is a major problem for the earlier made ones ( mines august 2007) when they were getting the unit just right
