Right, but the HW30 in best buy that I saw wasn't in eco mode either, and it was really quiet.

My bad. I'll get mine in a few hours (out for delivery). After that I can comment on the noise level

If you look back to my previous post a few pages back, there was a major difference in ghosting between my Xpand 103 and Monster Vision 3D glasses vs. the Sony.

Also, did you call the # he posted or a different #? did they charge you for the lens?

thanks!

The filters were free. I called the # he posted, but eventually got transferred to technical support.

I'm pretty sure I don't have the issue that one guy had where he could hear it in the next room, but I can definitely hear it from 10' away with no other background noise. I don't know that it's any quieter than my 5 year old Sanyo PLV-Z4 that I use for outside. Maybe a little bit quieter.

The first time I turned mine on it was quite a bit louder then each subsequent time. It's now whisper quiet.

does anyone have specific information on the lamp warranty?

I looked high and low, this is all I can find:

http://www.docs.sony.com/release/Warranty_251571002.pdf

posted under:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/mod...tab=manualsTab

but it claims it's a 2 year warranty, not 3 year as stated for the HW30. The above link shows 90 days, but curious if this is correct.

Was able to check most Commands last night and they all worked. It's really nice being able for instance to switch instantly between Cinema 3, Standard, Game and Cinema 1 to compare without any menu clutter. Here is my complete for now 2 HW30ES control pages.

My older notes from the Sony meeting show 90 days for lamp and 3 years for projector.

I'm positive that's what it is but i'll see if i can dig something up for you that will make it official.

Benito - thank you for checking.

I am still in disbelief of the prices I am seeing for the factory replacement lamps, it's almost too good to be true compared to what I've paid for the JVC replacement. The 3 year warranty + cheap lamps is something to take into consideration for those that are going to keep it for a while or when comparing it to other projectors.

It's the first thing my non-HT friend asked (who I recently sold an HW30 to) - how much is the lamp? he wants to use it for more than just 2 hour runs of a movie so the inexpensive replacement cost is a smart movie on Sony's part in my opinion.

It really is a good deal when you think about it.....
It's something that too often gets overlooked.

Can you post some links that you have used in the past that does carry the replacement lamp for the HW30.
Wanted some reliable websites. Too many bad ones out there.
Thanks!

Does AVS carry lamps?

Here's one. I don't like the word OEM"EQUIVALENT".

I'm planning on picking up this parcticular projector and was wondering what the ideal mounting position would be for a 144" (Diagonal) 2.35:1 screen with 1.4 gain would be? Ideally how far away should it be mounted and how far down from the ceiling should it be extended? Thanks in advance for the help as I can't seem to find a calculator for this projector.

On another site I saw that 145831411 was for the 250s, but the guy I was talking to told me that those were for the 100s.

Oh well, they're in the mail, now I guess I just need to order the glasses.

I knew I was going to be the one they said no to.. what a nightmare. I spent over an hour on the phone citing the KB article found here:

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/m...00%20189737969

I went through 5 different reps and finally 1 took the time to look up the KB article and the part #'s. In the end, they said they will not give them out unless they have the serial # and a copy of my invoice. WTF?

There goes an hour+ of my life I am not going to get back. If I knew I could order them online for only $14.99, I would not have bothered calling them in the attempt to get them for free (which is clearly stated in the KB article)

To order online:

https://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ec.../web/index.jsp

put in part # search in the upper right corner:

145831421 for the BR50
145839511 for the BR250

William, please put this in the front page for those looking to order the filters for the older glasses and especially the kids glasses (BR50's).

I just called Sony about my replacement projector that was supposed to go out last Friday. They said it hasn't shipped yet, and they don't know when it will...

For the br250s. Has anyone used them with the hw30 and the filters, do they work as good as the ones provided? I tried searching the thread for this, and googled it, came up blank. If they look as good as the new ones, then it would be a cheaper way than buying the new glasses.

Joe Rod at HDJ told me that he watched Monsters V. Aliens (my torture scene posted a few pages back) and didn't see any noticeable difference with the older glasses vs. the models shipped with HW30.

I just ordered some kids BR50's and should have them here soon to verify. My fear is that I will see the same thing as the Xpand 103's and Monster Vision 3D's.

I got the VPL-VW95 Translated

The successor to the VPL-VW90ES, which was announced in September last year and that was the first 3D home theater projector from Sony, promises to come to shake the market.
The specifications are still provided the account drops but primary data are the following:
High dynamic contrast ratio (1: 150.000), low noise ventilation system (22 dB in reduced consumption of lamp), flexible image calibration and the memorization of placement of a picture that allows customers to configure the aspect ratio 2.35: 1 with the touch of one button.
This product is also equipped with Advanced Iris 3 technology from Sony, which includes a solarmagic contrast to maximize the dynamic contrast ratio when used with the IRIS, significantly improving the brightness of the image, especially in 3D mode. Luminosity has not yet been espcificada but will surely be higher than the previous model 1100 lumen.
New features include a 2D/3D conversion mode, which is based on a single algorithm to reproduce a 3-d effect from any source. The additional image positioning memory remembers also the positions that correspond to the preconfigured aspect ratio and users can enjoy movies on a screen. In addition to all this, the 3D glasses from Sony have been optimised to be approximately 24 percent lighter and transmitter was rebuilt around the lenses in such a way as to not have to be installed or be connected through a cable.
The VPL-VW95ES will be available throughout Europe in October.

[quote=zombie10k;20857516][b][i]I am curious how much the new glasses have to do with large reduction in ghosting compared to the VW90.


Sadly to say, but not very much !
There are a [COLOR="black"]very little
less ghosting with the PJ1 and the glasses are a very little more "clear" - but its so small a difference, that Im allmost think I can see it because I know / want it to bee there

This week I will get a 30ér home and test it against my 90ES to see how much it increase light and decrease ghosting side by side.

dj

BTW - have to say that, on the "low" setting, the ghosting is not bad on the 90ES with any off the Sony´s glasses ( TDGBR50,TDGBR100,TDGBR200,TDGBR250 and PJ1), but exciting how much better the 30/ 95 gets in this area.

The good thing with the PJ1 ( in respect to a 90ér ) is that it is lighter, rechargeable and no adding off filter in front off the glass - in my opinion

This is what I have been saying every time the vw90 has been attacked for it's 3D performance. Ghosting was not my primary complaint. Screen brightness was my main complaint and I have been looking at a better projection screen to assist with image brightness.

The HW30WS doesn't even allow you to view 3D in low lamp. It automatically going into high with lamp modulation. Although without glasses you can't see/perceive the modulation (or I can't). It just looks like high lamp setting and maybe a little brighter.

The VW95ES will likely have this same high only with lamp modulation for 3D.
