Difference vw295es vw270es

In Europe we seem to have the Sony 4K projector ‘vw270es’ currently, which is the successor of the ‘vw260es’. In the us it seems it went from vw285es to vw295es. Are these the same projectors for different regions? If so, why would they have different numbers? Can’t seem to find much info on this as depending on a site’s location they only feature one or the other.

Yes.

No-one but Sony knows this.

Same projectors. All manufacturers do this. That way if they are sold in different regions (VW270ES shows up in the US), the manufacturer knows that somebody is breaking dealer agreements importing projectors from another country.

Ok so it’s safe to use US reviews and configuration tips but still buy the EU version. Thanks!

Yes, most of the time. Every now and then, there is a difference. But 95% of the time they are exact same projectors.
