Been watching this clip quite a bit:
I use my eyes for picture quality and this Sony just looks as good as the JVC to me.
Yah, I saw this sometime ago and wondered. And as you say quite doubtful for projector comparison as well. But like for sound (you do not know how it should sound) and if a film (or piece of music) is mastered on a particular speaker system it will sound completely different when played back on another. So in the end of the day you tune things to what you prefer wether sound or colour.It reminds me of videos like this
Judging high-end audio equipment when listen to the recorded setup only using internal ipad or laptop speakers.....
Subjective comparisons as on the video is useless, just pay atention to the settings of the projectors, if you have done a bit of calibration on these units those settings will raise some questions, first parameter would be to match lightoutput, grayscale and gamma tracking, take full advantage of the advanced calibration fratures to release the full potential of each projector, and turn off the damn ambient light, jesus.It looks like you say a joke by someone qualified
Never ask a store or a sales person whats the best, first they are not very often tecnically competent, and are verry often terrible biased towards the biggest profit.
Richer Sounds guy I spoke to said Sony is the best too!
I have a JVC X5900 and just sold the SONY VPL VW270ES however prefering the old JVC X500, waiting to see what happens to JVC next generation 4K projectors. The X5900/ X7900 is significantly brighter projectors, as i see it you run a 106" screen, so a old JVC X500 would be perfect, or you will need the X7900 or N7 to be able to close down the light to calibrate on that screen. The Sony will likely work on longest trow low lamp mode, but as the lamp dims you dont have a way to recalibrate lightoutput.Has anyone gone from a jvc x5900 or x7900 to this projector and prefer it. I am thinking of getting one.
Not sure if I'm allowed to start an owners thread but I couldn't find one so here goes! What's the worst that could happen?
Owned my 270 for a couple of weeks now having upgraded from an Optoma HD151X and personally I'm enjoying the visual improvements.
However, I can't say I understand the settings much. Some are relatively obvious but others less so. Even searching the manual or Google hasn't particularly helped. So, am I getting the best out of the machine or are there settings I should be tinkering with? I'd be very interested to learn from anyone else's experiences and I'm sure others new to the projector would be too.
One of the many things I'm yet to grasp is Reality Creation. Now I'm under the impression that the 270 upscales 1080P content as best it can to something approaching 4K. But, I'm still none the wiser if this happens automatically or whether I should be playing with settings. According to Google, but please correct me if I'm wrong, Reality Creation has something to do with upscaling. If so then this would appear to be on by default but then there are resolution settings within it. I had a bit of a fiddle but didn't know what I was doing and I couldn't see any obvious difference in picture quality so I gave up and decided to leave it alone.
One piece of information I can share with you so far is the 270's screen resolution when accepting an HDMI input from a PC. If I understand Sony's advert for the 270 on its website correctly, under Specifications, Display Resolution, it says Computer Signal Input, Maximum Display Resolution 1920 x 1080. With that in mind I was only expecting to get a 1080P resolution from my PC. Now, from my processor to the projector I use a 15m HDMI cable, apparently high speed 18Gbps and I've never experienced any issues at 1080P with my last projector. I did however get a few unexplained issues once I installed the 270 so I replaced the existing cable with a 15m Wyrestorm Active Optical HDMI Cable. Not only did this eliminate all the issues I was experiencing but the 270 now displays a 3840 x 2160 resolution from my PC and I'm still able to select Input Lag Reduction for gaming.
Anyway, I'd be really interested to hear from other owners as I'm keen to get the best out of the machine.
I’ve just posted a new thread querying the HDMI output when connecting a VPL-VW270ES to a PC (in this case I have an ASUS RTX2080 TI graphics card) but then stumbled across your post.
I’ve ordered the projector primarily for 4K PC gaming but have since noted the technical specification stating the output is at 1080p when connected to a computer so have contemplated cancelling the order. However your post appears to indicate 4K is possible with an appropriate graphics card and HDMI lead?
Could you advise if you have experienced any issues otherwise this could be an expensive mistake!
My first thought would be to check that HDMI on the projector is set to 'Enhanced Format' for both inputs to allow full bandwidth.Hi all, I have a small problem and hoping someone can help. I havce recently upgraded to the Sky Q v3 box which supports HDR/HLG broadcasts. When trying to play a programme in HDR through Sky it fails on the projector, just refuses to start. It plays fine on my HDR TV though. Any thoughts?

Following on from what DB9S says, it may also be your HDMI cable, depending on the type/length/quality as this will be pushing the bandwith.My first thought would be to check that HDMI on the projector is set to 'Enhanced Format' for both inputs to allow full bandwidth.
Then make sure the Q box is set to 2160p 10bit and go from there.

Spot on.That DreamAV YouTube guy irks me. Don't watch his videos as he doesn't actually review anything or give opinion on anything. It's minutes of fluff back to back, it's quite a skill tbh.
