Let’s start with an overview of the hardware. As usual, from the front. But first – what we have here, is a sleek but large looking home theater projector with a black finish. Overall its look is very minimalistic. The front only houses the recessed ARC-F motorized zoom lens, the front IR sensor for the remote control, and two indicator lights. The lights and the IR sensor are on the front, along the top, just to the left of the lens (if you are facing the front of the projector).
The VW995ES weighs in at 49 pounds, not exactly a portable projector. That’s fine, almost every home theater owner will have it ceiling mounted or placed on a high rear shelf.
Venting is done out of the front as well, from the left and right sides.
This Sony has two screw thread adjustable front feet, and two more in the rear.
The slightly curved top of the projector has no controls, but does have a nice Sony logo.
The back is also empty, but for the rear IR sensor, and recessed at the bottom, the power cord receptacle.
If facing the projector the mini-control panel is on the right side, recessed, and very small, running along the bottom edge of the “top” part of the projector.
All the inputs and connectors are on the other side, below the “top part” of the projector, and very well recessed, allowing for neat cabling.
