Black Friday 4K projector deal: $5,700 off Sony’s native 4K VPL-VW1100ES home theater projector
Stephan Jukic – November 24, 2016
Premium true native 4K home theater projection technology isn’t cheap by the standards of most budgets even when it’s coming up at a deep discount. However, if you’re already prepared to put down a couple tens of thousands of dollars on a 4K projector, a chance to skim almost $6,000 off the price is nothing to laugh at.
This is where Amazon.com’s superb and rather unique discount deal on one of Sony’s also rather unique native DCI 4K cinematic home theater projectors is something seriously worth looking at.
The online retailing giant is offering one of Sony’s ultra-premium VPL-VW1100ES 4K 3D SXRD projectors for sale at a $5,700 discount off its normal retail price. The resulting sale price is still far from affordable by many people’s standards at $22,297 but it’s a great deal nonetheless by 4K projector standards. The VW1100ES is normally priced at just under $28,000 and we don’t think anyone would simply laugh off the chance to save the extra 6 grand if this is a device they’ve already been thinking of buying.
Part of Sony’s unique line of native 4K home theater devices, the VPL-VW1100ES is one of the best and most robust such devices in a line of true 4K projectors that basically have no other serious competition on today’s market. They are some of the only models to offer real 4K resolution without upscaling.
This is partly why they’re so pricey, discount or not, but with that steep price comes a home theater experience like practically no other.
The VW1100ES is particularly loaded with specs and features among its VPL cousins and offers a load of deep contrast, vibrant wide color and high brightness specs.
