New Road Tests, Sony HW45ES review

We've just posted the seventh of our new Road Test evaluations as well as a review of the Sony HW45ES...

To no surprise, Sony continues to turn out impressive home theater projectors. At $1999, the VPL-HW45ES is the lowest priced home theater model in their line. Using their SXRD reflective technology, this projector delivers excellent black levels, contrast, and image depth. It is easy to recommend this one (see Sony HW45ES review).

We've completed seven Road Tests so far. These commercial models are selected for their unique competitive advantages, and once they pass our lab tests we give them the Road Test Certified logo and a special spotlight on the home page. We will continue the standard review format for consumer and home theater products, and reserve the new Road Test format for commercial products.

NOTE to Professional AV consultants and Installers:

We are doing ongoing evaluations to select products for the Road Test spotlight. If you are having a great experience with a particular commercial/installation model, and you think it warrants special attention on ProjectorCentral with a Road Test Certification, drop me a note at
