Always the same thing... It's depend on your room, screen size/gain and personal preference.
HW50 as better :
- Reality creation in 3D is amazing
- Reality creation in 2D varies from average to great
- Better MotionFlow (new motionFlow algorithm look less soap opera)
VW95 as better
- Black level (by a small margin. Need a complete black room to really see a difference)
- Less digital film look
- Maybe better even shaprness accross the screen (Athough, I dont notice that with the HW50)
I agree on almost all of it.
At first, I thought. The black level on the 50 was on the same ( very.low ) level as the 95, but it was not, it was because the 50 had a much higher light output - very impressive BTW. - so the black looked " blacker " then it was in reality ( make sense? ), again I would rate it to be clearly better then the 30, but not up to the 95 or any JVC.
In 3D, the 50 was just as bright as the 1000ES
, and if I had to pick a winner for "brigthest" in 3D, it would be the 50ES! very impressive, but the motion and.Picture quality wasnt up to the 1000es. ( not that it should be anyway
) in comparison it looked more "coarse-grained ". but again for the price, its hard to justify a 6 times higher price more for the 1000es if your main focus is 3D.
If. "you" have a big screen, a low gain / AT screen or like what a HP screen do for brightness in the picture and 3D is a main thing for you (. And you dont have a cinemascope screen
or a batcave or just NEED motorized lens,focus , memory settings etc. ) I would pick a 50 over a 95 ( and I own a 95
IMO is the 50 very impressive and sony has done a lot right in this projector.
