Ok after allot of pushing and shoving I finally get a unit!


heres a few pics, keep in mind light control is not easy in this room, the screen is a manual pulldown matt white 7 foot wide which is in front of double doors and windows, and its a hot summers day outside with the sun pelting in!


apart from that, the unit is as is out of the box, no cinema filter, and set to cinema mode, as I feel the fan is too loud in normal mode. When I first put the unit into cinema mode it seemed to go a bit reddish, but I havent played with the colour settings yet.


Before this PJ, I had sony CRT's, and I think the fan is in cinema mode about the same as my VPH-1251, and much louder when in standard or dynamic mode.


I hope this isnt too many pictures at once for low bandwidth users!

I have noticed my unit gives great results so far with SVHS and progressive component from my mid range DVD player playing PAL discs. The component is slightly better, but not "gee wiz" better.


I dont have DVI to hook upto it yet, thats on the list for Santa!


If anyone has any requets for anything let me know!


If anyone is after higher res pic's let me know, the camera is a 3.3 sony P71.


I rather like the memory stick functions on the projector, allready played a slide show, and I like being able to set my own splash screen! I never thought I would use memory stick on this thing!:D


And so far it appears pixel perfect! WOO HOO!!

No fair! I can't believe Sony Aus actually delivered a unit. I'm soooo jealous!

Where is mine? I placed my order in late October!


Did they give you any other info about the release in general? ie did they do a special deal for you or are they all being released now? Excitement is building now, enthusiasm returning...


Hope you enjoy it mate.

JSP, which mid range DVD player do you have that can play progressive PAL? I thought these were harder to come by than a local HS10 :)

Theres a few prog PAL/NTSC players about.


By midrange its not the $299 speacial cheapo, its the $399 special cheapo ;) The specs on mine arent too bad, I couldnt tell mine apart from the onkyo on my sony CRT so I didnt spend the extra cash


theres mine called a digired, then there's an ONKYO for about 800 bucks


thats aussie dollars though


then theres the big fella's at about 2000 bucks

It is amazing how ugly that projector looks.:)


Congrats on receiving it. Hope you'll have hours of enjoyment with it!

jsp, thanks for the pics. I'm glad a crt owner has one of these, as I'm thinking of getting one as well. I'm assuming the picture is sharper than the 1251. Is this so? How does the hs10 do regarding black level & contrast compared to the 1251 -- is it sufficient? Also, how about the overall smoothness of the image, especially on horizontal pans? Thanks for the info.

I'm closing this thread in order to begin to consolidate feedback from HS10 owners. Please post to the official OWNERS thread.


Thanks! :)
