I have an JVC X-90 with 235.1 screen(128"X50").
Been on the fence for quite awhile about purchasing a lens.
One of my dealers will take my X-90 and give me the JVC X900R with 6500.00 difference.
That to me seems like a very good deal as the x-90 goes for around 3000 used.
Now I could keep the X-90 and purchase a lens or just upgrade to the X-900R projector,
any thoughts on this minor dilemma,THX guys.
The only red herring would be if 21:9 panels take off in the projector space. There have been a few 21:9 sets cropping up. It would be great to see projectors embrace it, but it seems doubtful.
There are literally zero plans for 21:9 panels to hit projectors, at least for the foreseeable future. DPI and Projection Design had one a few years ago (at $25,000 or more, IIRC) and they ended up sitting on a lot of inventory. There is a discussion about that here:
FYI I saw those at CES and they were impressive. Both LG and Samsung told me that they are not necessarily going into production on those models - they were simply judging the response they were getting at the show. Time will tell what feedback they got, and whether or not these models will ever make it to a retailer near you.
Yes for upgrade it has to be substantial especially on the projector end.
So John keep my X-90 and pick up a lens for it or just keep the projector and wait a yr or more for 4K.
Zooming is fine BUT its starting to bother me a bit LOL,thx.
I have the JVC DLA-X900R and it is an excellent projector.
The screen is a Stewart 200 inch. I can walk up to the screen and look at it with reading glasses from one foot away and still struggle to see any pixellation whatsoever.
The difference in contrast from my previous JVC DLA-HD1 is huge and immediately evident. The picture is brighter and the colors richer. 3D is incredible.
However, I am not convinced that you will get value for money by upgrading from the X-90 which is an excellent machine.
The 4k argument will be pretty meaningless for a few years yet.
The studios will not produce much 4k blu ray, where is the mass market?
Practically no-one has the bandwidth for genuine 4k over the Internet.
Existing movies are not likely to be re-mastered to a resolution which is greater than the original source.
Brilliant processing of 2k to 4k is what is needed to enhance existing video.
4k display means that 3D can be shown as alternating 2k images, Way way better than 2k projectors.
JVC are the masters of modern projection systems, they are not stupid in going this route.
With your size of screen the X-90 is a good match, it is not a weak point.
Save your money or spend it on the sound system or a video processor if you view TV or normal DVDs.
