I was thinking of taking some shots with my C3X of a few movies and then comparing later, but that's probably a useless exercise given the 720p vs 1080p, 3 chip DLP vs LCD, etc. For now (unless the Epson disappoints), I will likely sell my C3X to some needy HDTV ESPN sports nut who would benefit from the 720p signals.
Now I have to decide whether to attempt to remove my ceiling buried 40' HDMI cable (and try to snake it without removing any drywall) and replace it with a new high speed/CEC HDMI cable - or possibly go wireless HDMI. Looking forward to the new projector, but my trusty C3X has served well for several years now.
Are you sure you made the right choice?
May be you should of went for the JVC and got the darkest blacks of them all.
Ya, you might have some ghosting with the JVC in 3D but the PQ is superior and you should just tolerate ghosting or you will be sacrificing a superb PQ for one that is not so good just to be ghost free and get high beams for 3D.
The JVC sharpness, convergence & PQ surpasses that of the Epson and Sony.
You are settling if you keep the Epson.
Or may be used should of got the Sony.
It has DI and film like PQ like the JVC in 3D.
It's almost like the best of the JVC & Epson.
The Epson PQ is hard edged looking and very digital compared to the JVC & Sony since it's you know, LCD.
The Epson is hard on the eyes and no where near the analog look of the JVC. You'll be rubbing your eyes 20 minutes to watching the Epson and wondering if you are watching a video game. You eyes will get fatigue quickly and you'll want to gouge them out from the burning.
I don't know...
It might be best to wait for the perfect projector. It's probably around the corner.
Maybe next Dec or the year after.
Some times it's best to wait and get your $3000 worth from a perfect projector.
Otherwise, you might be in multiple threads complaining about anything that is not near perfect. Like convergence, color uniformity, focus uniformity, pixels not the right micron size on a 150" screen, an so on.
May be seriously think about getting a 60" or 70" plasma for $900-1500 and sit about 2-3 feet away from it since it will blow away any of these projectors in terms of PQ and field of view is all that really matters to get the theater PQ experience (audio will not be discussed here as that is another can of worms).
Sitting that close will make your Plasma picture look huge!
