I'm about to order one of these HW45ES projectors.
Long story short, I had an HW40es PJ for 3 years, loved it! Put over 3k hours on the lamp. Then got the 4K itch to upgrade so I bought a VW365es on a good deal and thought I'd be set for the next few years. Unfortunately, I'm not too pleased with the 365. The features and caveats are unacceptable, esp with the high price point. No HDR during 4k (only 1080) and the motion enhancements in 4K are very limited and I see plenty of blurring/ghosting on fast motion, esp videogames.
So, I'll happily sell it and go back to the HW45 series and wait until Sony can make a better 4k projector with faster processor and HDR and sub $5k.
I notice above the talk of the Epson 5040's. I tried one of those and the faux K did not impress me. Sure it's a little crisper than regular 1080, but it's no where near 4K. My PS4 Pro settings were showing it only displaying in 2k, and the black levels are better on these Sony's. Plus, the Epsons, you see pixels and the motion enhancements are not as smooth as the Sony's. All my opinion of course, YMMV.
