Sony VPLES4 Review

The Sony VPLES4 projector is the entry level in the sony business range. The Unit offers an SVGA resolution 2200 lumen brightness (fine for an artificially lit room) and a fairly portable 2.9kg. First thing we noticed when testing was that the sony was fairly large. Not much larger than most other projectors in its class but still for the portable presenter this will be a factor when choosing.

The connections are fairly standard in the SVGA range with no real surprises on the sony. The image itself had quite good colour reproduction tested in both use on a DVD player and a PC and while the colour was fairly good the contrast was quite poor. For a presentation in a lit room this would not be a huge problem as the contrast is nullified by ambient light in a room but for people presenting in a darker room the black will look more like a dark gray and this will also mean less detail in the shading on the image.

It's one of the heavier units at 2.9kg but still remains portable enough the only other problem we found with the unit was the SVGA resolution which on an LCD unit meant that the image suffered from the screen door effect where the lines between the pixels were quite visible.

Bottom line the unit is fine for powerpoint and other basic presentations but for high resolution images and video we'd probably go the DLP route. Also we found the price to be a bit more than most SVGA units and this didn't translate into any extra quality or features.
