After 2 weeks, the "honey moon" is over and I no longer "test" the projector but just watch regular content. My initial impression still stand, this is a great machine. Nothing more to add, no "bugs" found yet. Just the pleasure to watch a movie with a great projector.
I have read many reviews here and on avforums and other places. There is no denying that its a great machine. If you remember, you said the same (or may be better) about vw95es
Every projectors I bought in the last 2 years never pass 2 days of "blind" satisfactions. At first they were good but after a series of test I found something I really dont like... And begin to look elsewhere.
I received my Sony 95 on Thursday, so 4 days later and I am still amaze
The real dilemma is for those who already own 95es and wondering if moving to 600es would be worth it. In other words, if one would see a good difference in b/w the two. I don't know exactly but I think one can buy 95es b-stock around (3k-4k) and 600es is a lot more.
My last projector was a JVC RS4810 and before that the Sony VW95.
I really like the VW95, it was a great machine too at that time. (and still good)
I change from the 95 to the JVC 4810 just for the curiosity of the eshift 4K and the better black.
After a while with the 4810 I realize I did not like the JVC that much, the eshift 4k was good on great source like Oblivion but with older blu ray or DVD, it introduce too much noise in the picture. Also, the motion and the 3D was a step down from the Sony. So in part was missing my VW95. That's where the idea of a VW500 came in. All the best from the VW95 but with real 4K.
In the end, the VW500 was a very good upgrade from the VW95. It's a lot brighter, the reality creation work really great (better than the HW50/55) and the 4K upscal is clean with no noise and not too many artifacts. The brightness combine with the very good contrast, combine with the 4K give the picture a sens of precision and depth that I never saw on any projector beside the Sony VW1000.
