sorry guys, didn't mean to offend. I thought the question would get better responses in the HT build threads since electrical is an often talked about topic. We've been off-topic for a while, I'm guilty party as well. We finally have a new model to discuss so I was hoping to keep the airwaves clear for this topic.

I have used an extension cord with my past 3 projectors and I have not noticed a degrade in PQ, with a low gauge extension cord you will be fine. Please see below for info on voltage drops using an extension cord

NP, Any word on new Benq models coming out? I would love for Benq to get back using the chassis they used on the W5000 and W2000.

I'd like to see an update to the W7000 with a better DLP panel, better contrast, etc.

I think this is the only one coming out soon:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1459299/benq-w1500

It looks like a step up from the 1070 but it won't have the lens shift of the W7000 chassis which I need for my HP screen.



On the topic of power cables, this is a hotly debated topic I've seen on the various forums. Some claim the better cables provide better PQ, etc, similar to high end HDMI cables.

I agree, I want DLP .95 Darkchip 3 or 4 in the W5000 chassis which was quiet. Throw in 3-4K lumens too

I purchased the Sharp XV-Z30000 a couple weeks ago so I am looking forward to your review of this projector and any recommended color settings.

Previously I had purchased the Sony HW50 & Epson 5020 but returned both of them due to significant motion judder with 2D HDTV sports content via Charter Cable TV.

So far the image on the Sharp 30K has been very clean with no motion judder so I'm overall very happy I went with the Sharp.

I thought the Sony was supposed to be great with motion, especially how it runs HDTV at 240hz?
Did you try changing some of the motion settings around?

In the Sony HW50 owners thread I've seen very few complain about motion with the Sony, but there have been a couple. Personally my unit does motion flawlessly with all my sources. I dare to say even better then my Infocus X10.

I've been reading through this 100+ page thread but unable to find a solid answer and thought it would be easier to post.

Im decided on a projector for my HT room.

its about 13' Wide, 17' Long. 8 1/2 foot ceilings. Fully enclosed HT room with no windows so its dark. Projecting onto 108" Screen Innovations Zero Edge screen. Projector will be ceiling mounted.

My options to pick from
JVC DLA-RS46 - Lowest price
JVC DLA-RS55 - middle price +$700 over RS46
JVC DLA-RS4810 - Highest price +$1300 over RS46

Originally had planned for the RS46 due to low cost and solid performance but just wanted to ask the experts before I made my decision.

Thank you!

RS-55 according to Zombie10k (originator of thread).
He likes E-shift 1 better than e-shift 2, though the 3D might be better on the firmware updated RS4810 than the RS-55 (forgot what Zombie said, though you probably already read this).

I have access to the latest firmware ones for RS46 and 4810U as well.

3D isnt a huge deal for me at all.
Mainly movie watching - non 3D

The only issues I've seen with motion judder on the HW50 have been using film mode.  I think someone in the HW50 thread mentioned something about an incorrect 3:2 pulldown?!  In any case, I watch a ton of sports on my HW50 and motion judder is something that I'm particularly sensitive to (think zombie and black levels)!  I can say the Sony handles motion very well if setup correctly.

RS-55 is my vote, though if you can go see them in PERSON first (are these floor models), if yes then check the convergence (fuzzy color around menu text or on JVC test pattern), and pick the RS4810 over the RS55 if the RS-55 has questionable convergence or inferior.

These are not floor models. Brand new.

is the room light treated as well? (dark ceiling / floor?) How far are you sitting from the screen?

Yes it will be, room is not quite done yet but i have a pretty dark blue carpet (almost black)

The ceiling I have yet to decide on so my options are completely open. (ill take suggestions)

As of now, ill be about 13 feet from screen, if I decide to do an additional row, the closest seats would be fairly close, maybe 7-8 feet.

A dark ceiling is critical for reducing the reflections that will kill the excellent native contrast of these models. Ideally you would have the ceiling black at least 1 screen height outward from the top of the screen.

If you're going to consider a close seating distance, you'll likely see a nice benefit to the e-shift.

I've seen all 3 models in my HT setup, I have a slight preference for the RS55 (dual iris, contrast looks great when clamped down) and the e-shift 1 vs. e-shift 2 (the original looks a bit more natural to me)

these are all nice projectors, the 4810 does have better 3D than the RS55 as an FYI.

White ceiling does not affect that excellent native (on/off) contrast.

But it does affect ANSI... Which is not so excellent, but yes, it is important too.

Do we color the whole ceiling black ( Flat Latex) ?, would it better to also hand velvet from the ceiling and the side of the walls in the front as well? I read somewhere on this forum, the color is calles "mouse ears" black , what brand is this paint?

A white ceiling, side walls, floor, etc....affects general image impact and pop as well. The more you can make your room invisible, the better the image will be in general since there is less distractions to catch your eye.

I got a sample of black velvet and put it up on the ceiling and the difference in the light coming off my ceiling (painted flat black) in comparison was drastic. Not sure how much this will be seen on screen but the ceiling will nearly disappear. I'll have to now find the best pricing on black velvet fabric and how to attach it to the ceiling.

I've heard this many times, and its "implication" seems to be something different than my "perception." I don't argue the numbers. They're easy to measure. However, my perception is that native contrast is much more important than ANSI to overall perceived image quality. Since the objective numbers tell us that native on/off contrast doesn't change because of white walls, ceiling and floor, the implication (to me anyway) is that the "experience" of watching a high native contrast projector in a dark room might not be dramatically better than it is in a light colored room. This is the polar opposite of my viewing experience. For me, darkening the entire room provided the single greatest improvement in my theater. Again, I'm not arguing numbers.

This is the point I was making. The perceived differences are substantial, especially with the JVC.

The only negative effect is that is makes projectors with less capable black floor than the JVC stand out. The 5020 and HW50 both look very good with dark scenes, but it changes with projectors like the Sharp 30K, HC8000 & BQ W7000 where I'd prefer a lower black floor.

It might take a Sim2 to provide the blacks i'm looking for with a DLP.

it depends on how crazy you want to get. Black paint will still reflect some light but will be a major improvement over a white ceiling. This is the material I use:

it has a very sticky adhesive backing... be warned it's staying attached to whatever you put it on (wall, ceiling, etc).

The big reason the black ceiling helps is two fold:

1) Unless you are watching your projector somewhat dark (sub 10-12 fL), the white walls will make the entire room brighter and still boost the black level above the perceived sweet-point in brightness, even though it does boost the white the same.

2) The ANSI contrast is raised, but the quality of dark scenes are not derived much from ANSI (though they still need some), but the main reason we see it better is because our eyes pickup the screen without distracting light entering our pupils. So although the screen itself doesn't change in contrast, the reception / perception to our eyes does due to distracting light reflections on the walls.
