Sony unveils duo of ground-breakingly affordable 4K laser projectors

Sony has unveiled a pair of new home cinema projectors that it claims usher in a new era of more affordable, higher performance ‘true’ 4K laser projection.

The affordability point is especially true of the new VPL-XW5000ES. This model is set to cost just £5999 / $6000 (around AU$8300) when it launches in the UK and US this summer (it’s not yet confirmed whether either new projector will launch in Australia). That’s roughly the same price as the current VPL-VW290ES (VPL-VW325ES in the US) it is set to replace, even though it uses a Sony Z-Phosphor Laser Light Source in place of the VW290ES/325ES’s traditional lamp lighting system.
