VPL-HW65ES

Sony HD Home Theater ES Projector

Sony’s step-up Full HD projector is a perfect choice for those looking to take their home theater experience to the next level. Performance improvements from the HW40ES include an increase in brightness to 1800 lumens and the addition of Dynamic Lamp Control, which allows the projector to achieve a 120,000:1 contrast ratio, improving its rendition of high-contrast scenes. The integrated 3D transmitter and 240Hz panel drive work together creating bright 3D images nearly free of crosstalk. These features, combined with the whisper quiet 21dB operation, make the VPL-HW65ES a great fit for a mid-range home theater.
