I am extremely disappointed about the behaviour of certain individuals here - Andreas21, Seegs108, darinp2, joerod, etc. - who display unnecessarily argumentative attitudes. Some in particular, e.g. Andreas21, openly and proudly acknowledge their previous violations of the forum rules which led to their temporary banning from the forum but nevertheless continue their aggressive behaviour. I am not sure about the age of various individuals here as this teenagerish behaviour does clearly not match the level of maturity and seriousness of the typical people who could afford such expensive machines.
May I please suggest to those who have nothing to add constructively to the topic of this thread to perhaps exchange phone numbers and continue the argument in private? Also, for those who feel the urge of discussing the JVC projectors here, may I suggest to them to move over to the JVC threads?
I appreciate your kind co-operation for helping bring back this thread on track. Thank you.
I'll respectfully refer to post 12689
. I see you've said "the last couple weeks". Are you upset that people are reporting issues about a Sony projector you own? Why should this be something that a moderator should step in on? Is it not an appropriate topic that should be discussed? Considering JVC is the only other major player in the LCoS market right now, it seems appropriate that comparisons be made to understand the status quo with this type of technology.
More recently the argument in this thread, which I admit got a bit childish in some of the posts, was still a valid one. It started at post 12583
where claims were made that "many" owners were experiencing issues with new JVC units and inferred that people should avoid them because of this. This, of course, turned out to not be true. It was one user's initial experience that was being touted as "many" or all experiences. And the discussion evolved from there.
Did I miss a rule that said you can't discus pros and cons of a projector in that particular projector's thread? Sure, this is a 1000ES thread but when someone is making wild accusations without giving proper (or logical) reasoning to back that claim up are we not allowed to counter this ignorance or are we simply to keep our mouths shut so a few owners can go about with their noses up in the air, patting each other on the back for owning this projector and allow the misinformation posted to be read by others as truth? That would be ridiculous, but alas, this is the attitude I sense from some owners posting in this thread whenever anyone mentions something negative about this projector or that maybe another projector can come close to, equal or best the image from the 1100ES.
No, I don't think bringing the discussion to another thread is always the solution because in a month or two the separate thread will get lost in the maelstrom of other topics started and those who are freshly coming into the topic in this thread will never get to see the conclusion to the topic being discussed. It should also be noted that, as of late, this thread hasn't seen much action anyways. I would understand if people were upset by something like this if this were a new thread with eager people looking for vital information. But that hasn't happened in this thread in quite some time.
Please enlighten me with your thoughts on what I've just said. I had this projector for 6 months before I sold it and it threw a beautiful image. But like anything, it's not perfect and sometimes a discussion is warranted to explain those things so that potential buyers can be made aware of these flaws...no matter how big or how little. After all, what's the point in discussing these products if we can't be made aware of what we're buying into?
