For someone like me, it comes down to what I can do with the money. The answer is I can get me a JVC RS-45 for movies and SCI FI, and a DLP for everything else. The don't want to have two projectors argument just does not fly with me, but to each their own. Now I have a setup that matches the Sony in motion, 3D, sharpness, brightness, dark scenes, sports, and nearly matches it in lamp life. Hence take some of the best DLP's that are so bright you will most likely get a lot more lamp life than a Sony, so you average that into just using the JVC for movies, etc...
If I'm watching something that I suddenly think, wow wish I had a little better motion, I flip a switch on the remote and now I am watching a DLP. For me personally, you just can't beat a DLP for motion. Before I even use that many lamps on the JVC, I can just sell the RS-45 next year, and get the next gen. Correct me if I'm wrong, but other then watching sports or non-24-fps stuff in general, the JVC motion and Sony motion will look close enough in movies, unless someone likes FI instead of 24fps.
But then there are external algorithms I can use through an HTPC for this if I really want to, of course a little bit more trouble, but not the end of the world. Now I don't know if any of the FI you can overlay on top of a bluray playing on an HTPC are any good, but I'm sure I can find something if I really want to mess with it.
For the calibration issues (if there are any big color space issues on the RS-45, which it should be close enough anyhow), then I can just buy an external video processor if I really want to.
I know people will say they cannot do a dual-projector setup, well then I'm sure the Sony is a better deal, as the JVC is best in a dual projector setup for sure....
