VPL-VW200

These two units look very nice, but of course the VPL-VW200 (the second picture) looks quite a bit more sleek. I am generally not a fan of front projectors, but just looking at the VPL-VW200 wants me to reconsider. There are some advantages to having a projector: very large screens (100″+), I can put it away after watching a movie, light compared to a LCD, PDP or projection TV. There are drawbacks too that’s linked to the advantages: you have to set it up every time you want to watch a movie. The 120Hz, 1080p with 1000 cd/m2 of brightness will surely generate some fantastic video. However, at US$15,000, it is way beyond affordable for most.
