Sony aims to impress with its VPL-VW665ES home cinema projector. It’s a true 4K projector that displays a picture of 8.8 million pixels--four times full HD. It’s also 3D capable and offers a dramatic contrast ratio of 300,000:1. The projector’s 1,800-lumen lamp is rated to last 6,000 hours. Sony includes technology in this device that is found in its highest-end professional line of products, such as its 4K SXRD panels. It also features its Triluminos technology, which the company says achieves truer-to-life colors. The VW665ES includes a 2.06 motorized zoom lens with a wide lens-shift range, making initial setup easy.

Despite some quibbles, I can still say that the VPL-VW665ES delivers some of the best images I’ve ever seen in front projection. Whether with 1080p or native 4K, overall performance was stunning. But there’s room for improvement.

If the VW665ES was an expensive car, I’d say it was one sweet ride. It’s certainly not perfect, but pretty awesome.
