To start with a few technical information:
Display Technology - SXRD
Resolution of Projector - 1920 x 1080P
Projected Image Size - 5m
Lens - Manual Zoom
Contrast Ratio - 3000:1
Lamp Life - 3000 hours
173 mm Height
366 mm Width
447.5 mm Depth
9.7 kg Weight
As you can see, the projector is quite heavy but then again, there is a lot packed in it!
With the ultra-high definition at 1920 x 1080p and 2M pixel, the AF115 is 2 times clearer when compared with HD and 3 times more clearer compared with Standard Definition.
The SXRD (LCoS) Panel has strengths and advantages both with the DLP (good Contrast Ratio) and the LCD (good colour impression). Therefore, SXRD displays natural colour as well as deep black colour.
The improved native contrast characteristics of the three SXRD chips are dynamically enhanced by the Auto Iris function for up to a 30,000:1 Contrast Ratio.
The noise level of the AF115 is the world's lowest among the 1500ANSI-Lumens grade Home Cinema projectors. This excellent noise reduction, achieved by ICND (Integrated Cooling and Noise Design) technology, is an LG patent.
The AF115 also provides the best sound and picture quality from a single terminal. Dual Ver1.3 terminals provide convenience for the users.
Overall, great picture, easy set up, looks classy IMHO, well put together, great value, virtually silent, bright and at 1080p with blue ray a real cinematic experience. I have run both the Panasonic BD-35 and the LG 370 Network Blue ray player through and it is exceptional. It is great value for money!
Pros:Fantastic picture quality, deep blacks, vivid color detail, no real issues of motion blur. Pixelation non existent because of the Sony SXRD chips (as opposed to DLP). Brighter than other LCOS projectors I have seen.Cons:The auto iris acts a bit funny in Iris 1 setting, I keep it on 2 or custom. Thing is a behemoth, but probably because of it's double layered case it's ultra quiet. Overall it's a great home theater projector for the money. Menu is setup funny.
