    Hi you lot,

    Been away for some time - ran out of money! I have a Sony VPL VW11Ht - dont ask me how much I paid for it (I might start to cry) and have just had a look to see how things are going.

    How good is the new Sony HS50 or is the 51 the latest (what is the difference?) version.

    Would it be much better than my VW11? I have had it calibrated and have a red filter already fitted but things have moved on somewhat?

    The one thing that does bug me about the VW range ( I have had the 10 and the 11) is the noise. My projector fits on the ceiling right above my head so any reduction in noise would go down well!

    Is the throw of the lens the same on the hs 50/51 as the VW11 - I wouldn't want to start buggering about moving my ceiling mount and does anyone know whether the holes on the projectors are the same distance apart? This would be fantastic if I could use the same mounting plate.

    Any feedback would be gratefully received.

    All the best :lease:

    One thing it will improve is black level and contrast MASSIVE DIFF but that isnt to say colour etc will be better. But im sure it will give a more cinematic picture

    Thanks Guys, It looks like I will have to wait for a look at the HS60 as I am a Sony Fan.
