Having recently purchased this SONY VPL HW10 projector on the strength of this review I thought I should comment. I'm only projecting onto a wall at the moment but the picture quality is perfect, just as sharp as my 1080p TV. Any sort of daylight certainly reduces the image quality though so until I have blackout blinds I am restricting viewing until sundown.

Two minor issues I have are no.1: Dark scenes, my HD TV produces better contrast but I expect the projector to perform better with a screen or goo systems painted wall. No.2: Fast moving objects, the frame rate doesn't match the 200 Hertz Motionflow or the 100 Hertz Samsungs but for the price (£1700) I'm more than pleased with it.

Other points: At a 13 foot seeting distance to the wall an 8 foot wide screen is comfortable (the image will go to 9 foot wide). The manual focus is easy to adjust with the thumb wheel but you'll need to tweak this each time if you replace the lens cap. It's a small issue but doesn't bother me.

The XBOX 360 via the component input is a little dissapointing but the PS3 via HDMI is Amazing. I can highly recommend this projector. Thanks TR for the review, in my opinion 9/10 is a fair scroe.
