Of course not. But I know for me at least, it's probably the image parameter that is most obvious when it's performance is lacking.
So motion handling, colour accuracy, image processing, sharpness, ANSI contrast, uniformity, grey scale, "POP" etc. etc. etc. has nothing to do with how good a projector is???
Of course they are, but we know the RS20 can have essentially perfect color accuracy, has a Reon VX processor (which is very good), ANSI contrast I'm not sure how important it really is (this is coming from a DLP fan), I could go on, but On/Off and Native contrast are really the
distinguishing factor with these machines, other than price.
For me at least, there are many projectors that are far better than the RS2 (haven't seen the R20), so I wouldn't be too sure the RS10 triumph its cheaper competition from Sony, Panasonic, Epson et al.
In the end it's the pictures the projectors throws that will tell which is better. Specs can only take you so far...
Very true. I was just responding to what I've seen most commonly lately:
"Ooh! The AE3000 has 60,000:1 On/Off contrast!"
"LCD has finally closed the contrast gap with "
No doubt LCD has made great strides this year, but that doesn't mean it's caught up. Looking at it objectively, LCD (based on the AE3000's reviews like Cine4Home) has basically caught up with Sony's SXRD and maybe DLP.
But JVC seems to be (somewhat quietly) making advancements almost as fast as LCD.

Don't think I said anything different.
