Upgrading Sony VPL-HW30 - Sony again? VPL-VW295ES?
I like to upgrade my Sony VPL-HW30. Main reasons to upgrade: probably need to buy a new lamp eventually, assuming tech made progress to provide appreciative better image, and 4k. Frankly, I will not have many 4k sources. I get movies though Netflix BD mail (which does not have 4k), xfinity (no 4k), and streaming (some 4k).
Nevertheless, I thought getting a 4k projector probably makes sense, given the fact that I keep apparently projectors for 7 years.
With that, it appears that the Sony VPL-VW295ES is the lowest priced true 4k projector?
I am assuming pretty much everything will be better with VPL-VW295ES compared to VPL-HW30?
Also, could I keep my (old) Dalite 110” HCCV screen (16.5’ throw distance)
Should I look at other models?
Also, VPL-VW295ES appears to be about two years old. Any concerns about new model coming out soon?
