From a pixel count only, that would be correct, but even not then because the Sony can display 4K native and the JVC only 1920 x 1080 or a scaled 3940 x 2160. This of course is relevent to those with 4K cameras now or in the future. The Sony does provide for 4K native if that should that come along in consumer source material. But the Sony has lot of other things going for it to justify the price. These have been peviously listed.
In my opinion, the JVC RS55 and RS65 are a hell of a value price/performance wise. So is the Sony given all you get there too, but it is simply beyond many's economic budget.
Many in the $20K forum have 2D only projectors that were considered by many to be the best and that streeted for north of $20K and now well well north of $20K and that the Sony, based on specifications and features including hardware quality, will likely best and significantly do so at a possible street of under $20K. This does not lessen the PQ quality of those projectors (and please DO NOT set forth brands and models), but the performance bar has likely been risen by Sony for a lower price. This is a tough tough market for any projector manufacturer at any price class level. There is a lot of competing good stuff and likely not any in a given price class that a critical review by an unbiased reviewer would conclude clearly bests the others. The Sony is in its own class performance wise at the current street and will present a signifcant challenge for many more expensive projectors. A/Bs will happen and owners will post comparisons. Intereting times and choices are here.
I would love to have one of those older and still curent projectors just as I would love to have the Sony 1000. Its the lack of funds things again.
This sport is usually based on what one can afford, often one going even a little beyond that. And then that decision get's defended as spending more (which one can't do) as being some other's waste of money, performance value wise. The Sony would appear to be a tremendous projector choice if one can spend the money. And the owners of the Sony will likely draw the hidden envy of owners of machines above and below it price wise.
