CEDIA 2006: Hands-On with the Sony VPL-VW50 1080p Projector

Out of all of the projectors being featured here at CEDIA, surprisingly, this one from Sony has the most bang for the buck. We first mentioned the VPL-VW50 projector a few days ago, but I have since had some more hands-on time and I am very impressed.

This 1080p projector is powered by three SXRD micro-display chips. It has a contrast ratio of 15,000:1 and a brightness of 900 lumens. It is also somewhat of a "casual" projector working conveniently in a dark home cinema theatre environment or a living room environment. Best of all, this projector so far is the cheapest at $5,000, and it will be available later this month. Hit the jump to see some photos of the sexy connections (including dual HDMI).
