Sony VPL-VW40

Sony VPL-VW40If you are currently looking for a very nice Full HD projector the Sony VPL-VW40 could be the perfect projector for you. The Sony Bravia SXRD 1080P front projector is set for release at the end of January 2008.

The Sony VPL-VW40 specification wise looks a lot like the now discontinued VPL-VW50, except it has a much more friendly price tag of just $2,999. Inside the VPL-VW40 is a full HD / 1080p native resolution 12-bit panel offering a 1920×1080 pixel resolution at a high contrast ratio of 15,000:1 for supreme colors, and features BRAVIA Engine, Advanced Iris 2 and an ultra quiet fan. You can project an image from 40″ to 300″ diagonally.

If you know a thing of two about front HD projectors, you will know that some will cost you a fortune at between $5,000 – $30,000 so an asking price of $2,999 for a Sony brand 1080p projector is very tempting indeed. You will find an ARC-F lens on the Sony VPL-VW40 along with two HDMI inputs, VGA, component, composite, S-Video and RS-232 inputs. Will expect to see the VPL-VW40 at next years CES which is just around the corner.
