Sound option

The W1200 has a token on-board sound system driven by a 2 x 10W amp. This is bolstered by SRS Wow HD sound processing to boost bass. Frankly, the noise it makes is akin to a transistor radio, and from an AV point of view is insignificant. On the plus side, if you do whip out the PJ for a quick session on the Gears of War 3 beta, there’s no real need to wire the games console into a sound system.

Casting shadows over high-end alternatives

Verdict

Overall, the W1200 presents a great argument for not spending an arm and a leg on a high-end home cinema projector. Bizarrely, I’m going to advocate you spend even less. The W1200 has a lookalike sibling which lacks frame interpolation and is £200 cheaper: the W1100. My suggestion is if you like the sound of this model, audition the W1100 first, as I’m inclined to think the frame interpolation isn’t worth the extra wedge. ®
