I just finished building my new house and built what I thought was the perfect den for ambient light viewing.
I have Stewart Filmscreen grey hawk fixed 106" screen with gain.
I have a DVDO VP50pro video processor
Projector is ceiling mounted on center about 7' high and a distance about 12.5', close to minimum distance of 11' for brighter picture.
I don't have and windows in den and most have some curtains in adjacent rooms so daylight is not directly on screen at anytime.
I work from home and use my projector for my main TV watching HD cable throughout day with about 5 movies a week.
Bottom line, I purchased the RS1x as I had read it was brighter that the RS2 which had also just came out when I purchased, but I see the new JVC projectors have almost double the Lumens (1300 vs 700). I read enough to want to purchase a new projector now and would like advice.
3D is a plus, but not necessary.
Brighter is the most important reason for upgrade, but 2D picture needs to be as good or better than RS1X.
I was considering a B-stock RS50U or RS60U, but then I just read a thread that said they were some of dimmest after calibration and RS45 is much brighter.
I am not married to JVC so suggesting any brand/model brighter and having at least equal picture quality of RS1X is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
