I have my Sony emitter sitting on top of the projector, facing my 142" 2.8 HP from a 16" foot throw, and it works just fine. I never dropped the IR signal moving around anywhere in front of the projector.

I am not sure why Sony says it has to go up front, but I would recommend trying it on top (I am a shelf mount) or bottom if you have a ceiling mount.

Home waiting on mine now and looking at making an Official Owners thread. I can go ahead and make it and edit along. How does this look as a first draft sans formatting and pictures? Suggestions, ideas and content appreciated.

Sony info:

The VPL-HW30ES is our very latest 3D Full HD projector,
bringing you cinema-quality pictures. With the
VPL-HW30ES, enter a new era of ultra high quality 3D
imagery, accessible at an affordable price. Packed
with the very latest innovative features which are
easy to use and control, you can experience enhanced
immersive 3D movie content without having to leave
your sofa.
3D BRILLIANCE FOR YOUR HOME
With this projector, you can experience the awardwinning
combination of Sony’s explosive 3D imagery
and our new, unique Dynamic Lamp Control technology.
Dynamic Lamp Control boosts the appropriate
brightness when each of your 3D glasses’ shutters
flicks back open. This means that you will not lose
any brightness and attain the optimal visual experience
from the comfort of your own home.
SHARPER, SMOOTHER IMMERSIVE ACTION
When you’re viewing your favourite film, or even trialing
the latest release - you want to know that you are
watching the action the way it was meant to be seen.
Sony’s SXRD panel technology minimises the gaps
between pixels for sharper, stunning image quality.
Motionflow automatically inserts extra frames
between the images to improve the smoothness of
the film, and makes action scenes and character
movements flawless.
HUGE RANGE OF USER ENHANCEMENTS
Since the previous model was launched, we have
strived to achieve even better. This projector now allows
you to pre-select separate parameters for 2D
and 3D content for Dynamic, Standard, Photo, Game
and Cinema modes, as well as automatically recognising
2D or 3D input. You can customise your viewing,
to match the room specifications, along with the
content type.
The VPL-HW30ES has integrated 3D with frame-sequential
3D USB-chargeable glasses* and a transmitter*.
This transmitter will activate the 3D mode – and
bring your content to life.
PRIMESUPPORT
This product comes with PrimeSupport – fast, hasslefree
repairs and a helpline offering expert technical
advice. Which gives you the peace of mind that Sony
is looking after your equipment, and your business.
With VPL home projectors, PrimeSupport also includes
a free loan unit – of similar specification if repairs are
likely to exceed 10 working days, minimising your disruption.
*Products sold separately
Features
Improved 3D brightness
The VPL-HW30ES delivers 3 times the brightness of
the VPL-VW90ES through its new lamp and electronic
technology, also giving better light efficiency for time
sequential 3D pictures.
SXRD panel technology
SXRD panels minimise the gaps between pixels to
0.2μm for sharper, dot-free images, making it possible
to reproduce 240 frames per second. The opening
and closing of the shutters on the 3D are synchronised
to ensure that each eye receive the correct
image, thus reducing Crosstalk to a minimum. The
result is stunningly detailed, high-definition 3D images
that you believe you can reach out and touch

Motionflow
Motionflow technology allows the VPL-HW30ES to display
twice as many images per second. This algorithm,
unique to Sony, creates completely new images
based on the incoming signal, and inserts them
between the original frames to reproduce smoother,
sharper motion.
Dynamic Lamp Control Technology
When each of the shutters on your 3D glasses opens,
Dynamic Lamp Control Technology automatically
boosts the brightness in the image to that eye, maximising
the picture’s impact and the lamp’s efficiency.
Separate 2D and 3D modes
The VPL-HW30ES allows you to pre-select separate
parameters for 2D and 3D content under a variety of
application modes – Dynamic, Standard, Game, Living,
Cinema and Presentation – as well as automatically
recognising 2D or 3D input.
Advanced Iris3 control
This is an automatic Iris control feature that enhances
the contrast in accordance with the scene. It maximises
black and white levels without diminishing peak
brightness.
Extremely low fan noise (22dB)
The VPL-HW30ES runs very quietly with an advanced
air discharge system. Through a highly efficient cooling
system, fan noise is suppressed to a mere 22dB.
With whisper-quiet fan noise, users can concentrate
on a movie or game in a quiet environment without
distraction
New remote commander
The VPL-HW30ES is supplied with a new remote commander,
with backlit buttons for ease of use in
darkened rooms, one-touch control for many popular
adjustments, and easy grip for practical convenience.
Adjustable Lens Shift
The VPL-HW30ES has an adjustable ‘Lens Shift’ function.
Picture position (both horizontal and vertical)
can be easily adjusted with the motorised adjustable
‘Lens shift’ function, which expands the projector’s
placement and installation options without distorting
image quality.
Vertical range : Max. +/- 0.65V
Horizontal range : Max.+/- 0.25H
Panel Alignment Function
The VPL-HW30ES is configured with a function that
compensates for gaps in character or colour management.
It is possible to select R(Red) or B(Blue) to
make adjustments based on G(Green), and to adjust
the horizontal and vertical direction by shifting the full
image or selecting points of each colour.
RCP (Real Color Processing) Ver.2
The VPL-HW30ES offers an "RCP (Real Color Processing)"
function to adjust the colour and hue of
each target colour of the projected picture independently.
Additionally, version 2 adds the ability to adjust
the brightness at the same time. With this capability,
dealer and enthusiastic users can tweak the images to
perfection.
Fully Digital Signal Processing
Incorporated High quality Engine in the VPL-HW30ES
is a fully digital integrated picture enhancement engine,
optimally engineered by Sony for front projectors.
This high quality Engine relies on a collection of
Sony-unique algorithms such as noise reduction and
colour enhancement to produce sharp, vibrant, lifelike
images.
BRAVIA Sync
BRAVIA Sync simplifies and enhances the home
theatre experience. Through the control capabilities of
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface), the
devices sync with one another for intuitive operations
such as One Touch Play and System Stand-by.

Maybe get rid of all the Sony marketing stuff, and just include the Specs on down. Then link to the page with all the data.

Nice! Curious to read your report!

I've read that the Xpand glasses aren't working with this new Sony unit. Hopefully Sony will get some more pairs out there soon. Having only two would seem to limit the usefulness of the HW30's 3D capabilities.

I could not get either of my Xpand 103's working last night on the Sony HW30. Mode 4 will sync, but ghosting is bad and they lose sync every 10-15 seconds.

got a couple of more 3d discs yesterday, watched the cirque du soleil and last air bender in 3d. this thing is really pretty sharp and extremely clear to watch in 3d. i had some reservations about buying a 3d projector, but i am really loving this one so far. the glasses are pretty nice but i do feel a little pinching after wearing them for a while on my nose. outside of that i have no issues at all. people have asked about screens with gain, but the theater room paint i bought for this as my screen is working fantastic.

Now please just have zoom memory and I will be all over it.

Since we're further down the road, here's some info you might want to check out before buying a 3D projector.

The Panasonic is offered by visual apex (bought my projector from them and they are on time and have excellent customer service) for $2,999.

Home Theater: Acer H9500BD 3D Projector, 120" Elite Screen, Sony BDP-S780 3D Blu-Ray Player, Logitech Z-5500 5.1 Surround
