I have a Pioneer Elite PRO FJP-1 (the JVC RS-2 clone) and the picture quality is pretty good. The black levels with my Black Diamond 0.8 (1st generation) is outstanding, but it is also fairly dark... I just don't think the projector has enough light output (and the room is light controlled, although not perfectly pitch dark...). However, I now have 1200 hours on the bulb... So I see two options... either get a new bulb and use this projector for another 2-3 years (that's how long that bulb will last me..) or sell the current projector (and how much would I get for it? does it even have a value left after all these years) and buy a newer projector. I don't want to give up the black levels I've come to love (so I'm thinking sticking with JVC... although not set on that if something else can match it), but I would love to get increased brightness, it would be nice if it was sharper (the RS-2 was never the sharpest PJ to start with...). 3D is not that important... yes, would be nice to have, but I can definitely do just fine without it.
Another issue that the current project has is that it seems to drift out-of-focus, so I have to refocus it about 1/month. Not a big deal, but would be nice if I didn't have to do that...
So, any input/suggestions?
