Thanks for the review link. it hit a few points I found interesting.
After sitting in a box here for over a week I finally had my new JVC HD950 installed into my HT. (Thanks joerod for steering me well on this PJ). My expectations were high esp. since I replaced a projector going back to 2004. Initial impressions absolutely do not disappoint.
Ran some cable (FiOS) some Blu-ray and some Video Games. For my tastes, the image is just about... perfect. Really, it's going to take some work for me find things to criticize from this PJ. Even uncalibrated the THX mode is excellent of the box and that's given that I drop it down right in front of my calibrated Kuro 6020 Plasma as a reference point.
i do agree with the reviewer's impression that the THX mode feels just a tad bit "flat" out of box. i could see a calibration that improves on it somewhat. The other modes could use even more help even as solid offset color temparatures so thats going to be a project for me. Even out of box though this THX mode will make me very happy on movies and for accurate viewing in general.
i also found the reviewers impressions on the JVC Frame Interpolation helpful although the final analysis was predictable. This feature just doesn't seem to sit right with most movie afficianados and A/V purists and for obvious reasons.
Still from my perspective this looks like the biggest reason for getting the new model rather than it's predecessor RS20. He finds the "soap opera" / "video" effect too strong. For friends of mine that like the feature in other displays that's the very effect that floors them so much so in the end the more pronouced effect may register as a net ++.
Finally, I was also relieved to find the projector's brightness to be excellent for my applications and usage. Before purchase, that was a little concerning for me after I read joerod's review where he prefers the new Sony (85?).
It sounded like this PJ might lack a bit in brightness but I'm finding that is a non-isssue. I am able to get very, very good performance even when I allow for some ambient light in the room which sometimes it's convenient for me to do. I haven't engaged the high lamp mode yet either so I'm quite sure the lumens of this PJ will get it done for me.
Looking forward to reading up more on the wealth of information in these owner threads (RS20 + RS25).
