Sorry Just didnt want this to turn into a 9700 vs HD250...
Reason i am going with this unit over the jvc is
Epson Spec list for this projector...
have looked at the jvc and have found them to be way over priced ...
this unit from epson comes with a bulb , mount, cover and 3yr replacement coverage..
Also the modes for cinema day, cinema night , hd, thx.. are easy for anyone to use with out getting complicated ..
If you want a projector that has an amazing picture with no hassle this is that unit.
MSRP is 3199 us and 3499 Ca...
that is a 300 price drop from last year
that price drop i think will get them more sales this next fiscial year.
