Hi to everyone,

I just wanted to thank all those who helped me make the right choice a month ago and for all the advice which I was offered.

X95: $12,000
X75: $8,000
X55: $5,000 (improved version of the X70 - this new model has better lens/lamp setup and better e/shift and an almost identical contrast)
X35: $3,500



Maybe this information can be of help to who is about to make the plunge! BTW, B&H just reduced their new X7/X9 prices to 3K$ and 4K$...

3K$ for an X7... very interesting price... Do forum rules allow links to stores?

Aren't the X7 and X9 the models introduced in 2010?. E shift didn't arrive until the models introduced in Sept 2011?

The worry about something new, is to be the "beta tester" for a company...

That would be more of a concern if it was a new model from the ground up. These are refinements on the last two models. In other words these are the models that should have the bugs worked out.

I hope we have moved out of beta testing phase with the 3d this year as well Mike. A lot of us that owned either the 40/50/60 and/or 45/55/65 DID feel like beta testers the last 2 years. Will be interesting to see the reports once the production units ship from those that are familiar with previous models as far as how much or little 3d has actually improved. Flicker certainly wont be any better considering the same 120hz which is a bummer, but other areas might....we will see. smile.gif

Actually the X75 is the improved version of the X70. These have the dual iris to increase contrast ratio while the X35 and X55 have a single iris. The JVC specified 50,000:1 contrast ratio (CR) on the X35 and X55 is the same as for last year's X30. The big step-up features for the X55 are eShift and CMS which previously were only available in the top two models (i.e., X70 and X90), while the lower black levels and increased CR come in with the X75 (CR=90,000:1) and X95, thanks in part to the dual iris setup (used in last year's X70 and X90). Of course these CR values are only obtained with the iris (or both iris in the case of the X75 and X95) closed down to the max. possible and also the zoom set for the longest throw. This produces the least light output but max. CR. When setup for maximum light output (e.g, 900 lumens in best picture mode with the iris fully open and zoom set to max. for short throw) the CR will be much lower for all of the JVC models and the CR for the X35 or X55 may be as little as pehaps 20% less (i.e., worse) than for the X75 (estimate based on some measurements for previous models). Note that reported CR values vary by who is doing the measurement and how it is measured, so you can only compare reported CR values from the same reviewer using the same measurement technique.
