Sony releases new portable projectors

New models reduce standby power consumption

Sony Australia has added four new micro-portable business projectors to expand its E-series line of video projection systems.

The new VPL-EW5, VPL-EX50, VPL-EX5 and VPL-ES5 are successor models to the VPL-EX4 and VPL-ES4, launched last year, and all four have a "3-LCD panel system" that delivers images of up to 2500 ANSI lumens of brightness.

For the first time in the E-series, the VPL-EW5, VPL-EX50 and VPL-EX5 utilize Sony's BrightEra imaging technology which incorporates an inorganic alignment layer within the LCD panel, making the display panels more resistant to damage from UV energy while allowing for increased brightness and contrast.

These projectors deliver consistently vibrant, high resolution images with enhanced detail, achieving up to WXGA and XGA resolutions with a high contrast ratio of up to 900 to one.

Sony is pitching the new projectors for use in small to medium-sized venues such as boardrooms, classrooms and at home.

The "Off & Go" function allows the AC power cord to be unplugged once the unit is turned off without having to wait for the projector to cool down.

All four projectors reduce power consumption to below three watts in standby mode.

In addition, halogenated flame retardants are also not used in the production of the projector chassis and printed wiring boards which can generate dioxin, a harmful carcinogen, when burnt.

The new projectors are priced from $999 to $1795.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
