The bulb died on my VW-50 Pearl, so rather than spend $300 on a new bulb, I am considering getting an AVS B-stock on the VWPro1 at an attractive price.

My VW-50 was mounted on the Sony PSS-610 bracket. Will that bracket work with the VWPro1? The manual (found online) says to use the PSS-H10, but those don't seem to be available anymore ($700+?!?!) . Looking at specs online of the Pss-H10 it says it will work with the WV50 though.

Should work fine, because the current Chief 020 plate fits the VW50 and the VWPro1, so the hole spacing is the same.

Well I did it!

I just placed an order for the Sony VWPRO1 from AVS.

 

I hope I made a good choice as I originally wanted the new 55ES but when it came to saving over $2,200 I had to give the PRO1 a try. Also this is my first projector so I should be easy to please.

At that price, the Pro1 is a steal. Especially since they come with spare lamp. I think you will be real pleased.

What size screen? What gain screen? Can you still block out the ambient light coming into the room?

Room prep is in the work. Ceiling will be dark, walls will be dark (deep maroon?), a window and a slide door will get dark shades. Floor is cherry but will get dark rug. There will be drapes all around the walls also. My throw distance can go all the way to 17 ft. View distance is ~13 ft. The wall is 17.5 ft wide and I'm thinking of 140" screen? I have read a lot about the jvc rs46, sony hw50 and 55. The room was prep for the rs46 from the beginning.

If going that large, then I would go with a screen that has 1.3 gain or higher. Give us a call, if you would like to discuss.

Just wanted to reply and say I bought one of these "B-stock" but actually brand new projectors and I am very happy. It included a spare Sony branded bulb so I should be set for a long time.

The projector is better in every way to my old 7" CRT except one. I have no problem using it in a moderately lit room even with the lamp on a low setting. However currently my screen is only about 90 inches.

I received my Sony VPL-VWPRO1 yesterday and tried it out on a bare wall... WOW! I am so happy $1,299 Brand New and spare bulb it was a bargain, I am so happy. The picture was fantastic straight out of the box, then again I am a projector rookie. If you bought one of these from AVS you are going to love it.
