Am i wrong in assuming that the GW use the same projector internally. I think the HS10 didnt come out untill the GWII came out but now the the GWIII is coming out will there be an upgrade to the HS-10?
The GWII uses the same size (1.35") LCD panels as the 12HT (the hs10 uses .87"). I'm not sure if the rest of the internal pj on the GWII is the same as the 12HT. I am curious on what the GWIII will be using....
From reading the specs, I think Sony is just trying to add more LCD rear projection units to thier line. They will be releasing 3 new GW RP's a 42, a 50 and a 60, and also they will be upgrading thier XBR GW line, with a 50, 60 and 73 (hopefully by year end).
wishfull thinking on my part, I have been delayed in getting my basement finished so I was hoping there would be a little upgrade to the HS10 during my wait to make me feel a little better about lost viewing time.
Maybe a surprise HS10II with better blacks will be out this fall...fingers crossed
Hard to say, but the TW100 looks like an upgrade to the HS10 - though you definitely pay more for getting more. Personally I think with a gray screen, cc40r filter and rgb adjustment, there aren't many people that would be disappointed with the contrast or black level of the HS10.
I've had mine for 6 months and after a bit of tweaking I'm thrilled with the performance. Spending more for more projector would be a matter of diminishing returns for me.
I have heard a rumor that Sony will be debuting a new projector in June. This was from a salesman that seemed very honest. Matter of fact he told me to not consider upgrading until June because Sony and Sanyo are debuting new projectors and Panasonic will be lowering the price of the 300U in response. I don't know if this is accurate or not, but I wonder if Sony and Sanyo will be announcing projectors using the same chip.
