, there's a different balance of pros and cons between the Sony HW45ES and Optoma UHD60. Which one is best for you depends on your priorities and preferences. If you take the time to read what's already been written about the two it will be obvious where each is superior and inferior to the other. Also if you take the time to list how you plan to use the projector, including in the dark or with ambient light, desired screen size, gaming or no gaming, with or without 4k content, etc., it will be easier for others to focus on advising you which one they would favor under those circumstances.
ok thanks for the reply i have decided on the sony vplhw45es looking for sales now
Beware of low advertised prices. Sony requires all of its authorized dealers to only advertise the price that Sony approves, which is currently $1,799. Vendors that advertise lower prices may not be Sony authorized dealers, and the projectors they sell may be gray market units that are not eligible for Sony's factory warranty. If you want the Sony factory warranty it's best to deal directly with Sony authorized dealers. They may be able to give you a discount if you negotiate directly with them but they are required not to advertise lower prices.
