We reviewed this $ 35,000 Sony projector with old internet videos



Remember the old times of the Internet? When did actually have to load videos ? Yes, these times were certainly great and terrible. And that made me think – could we combine the worlds? And are you watching old internet videos about modern new technologies?

I have you. So, go on, what are the specifications?

Thrillingly hearty. It weighs 22 kg, uses a Z-phosphor laser light source and has a brightness of 2,200 lumens. In practice this means it works for a home theater setup with some ambient light.

As already mentioned, is projected in 4K (resolution of 4096 x 2160) and HDR. In addition, it also supports 3D – if someone is in the mood for a long dead format.

The VPL-VW995ES should also work at peak performance for at least 20,000 hours of uninterrupted video playback. Oh, and it came on a box in a box like this:
