 Sony's VPL-VW1000ES 4K home cinema projector comes with a 4K lens, giving you the quality of full HD in a home entertainment system.

The projector's 4K native resolution -- over four times that of standard HD -- offers 4096 x 2160 resolution, and each pixel is reduced from 7μm to 4μm in conjunction with surface flattening for a better distribution of light. Combined with Sony's Iris3 technology, the projector can achieve 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast, and image brightness of 2,000lm, nearly twice the output of other Sony projectors.

The projector's 2.1 zoom lens includes a shift range of 80% vertical and 31% horizontal to make ceiling mounting easier.

The Sony VPL-VW1000ES can be purchased online for roughly $25,000.

    Given the premise of the story which is "fantastic personal tech that is beyond the reach of those with normal-sized bank accounts" -- this is the best list the author could come up with? A bunch of boring everyday items that have been hit with a Bedazzler (albeit one loaded with real diamonds)?

    • This writer is absolutely the worst one on ZDNet

      Her "articles" are fluff and nonsense and she struggles with grammar.
