Excellent Projector!

VPL-VW285ES 06/11/2017 by JimSurfing (USA)

I have been waiting for an affordable "true" 4k projector for some time now and this Sony fits the bill. I have a 150" screen and 4k is a major step forward in sharpness over my previous 1080p projector. The projector is unique in that it projects at near maximum lumens when in reference mode for movies. Essentially, you should compare the lumens rating against other projectors when in "movie" setting and you will find it to be brighter than most higher lumen projectors. The HDR 4k movies really shine, but you will also be very impressed with your Bluray movies as well! The 3d is awesome also. I feel like I will be keeping this one a long time. Certainly, a substantially better picture than what I see at the movie theater.

Colo Banding.

VPL-VW285ES 23/11/2017 by Kanjo (USA)

Significant color banding with 10bit4k 60hz signal. Very bad with games, and streaming. Sony should have made this very clear. TVs have solved this problem a long time ago. Very bad for a unit this expensive. Feel slighted. Avoid Sony projectors until they fix this!. Otherwise the picture looks good.

Excellent projector at a really good price

VPL-VW285ES 08/12/2017 by BrianDX (USA)

I upgraded to this PJ from my older JVC. First off the picture is "creamy sharp" which is really hard to do. Second, this PJ has plenty of lumens, very nice black levels, and plenty of controls to properly dial-in HDR sources. The 14 GHz does not affect me as I'm not a gamer. Highly recommended!
