Is the JVC almost as good at 3d(if I use the Xpand glasses) and watching sports?
I'm not answering for Mike but if you want the best 2D looking image then the JVC is awesome. Hard to beat in that category. The only caveat I've found from my JVC is motion handling. When a movie pans you can really see the judder effect. You get used to it but I wish it wasn't there. Any sport that has a lot of motion to the camera and you'll see the same effect. Football, boxing, baseball, Tennis, golf etc etc where the camera is more stationary won't be too bad but hockey, basketball, soccer and such where the camera moves a lot will be affected.
I don't own the HW55 but do own the HW40. I think the HW55 is probably the best all around projector. It's good at brightness, blacks, motion, video games (low latency) and probably has similar 3D as the JVC (not too sure though). The only caveats for the Sony would be softer looking lens and no automated lens shift and zoom.
So it will come down to what your priorities are. What's important for you. What you're willing to sacrifice and what you're not willing to. If gaming, sports and maybe 3D are a lower priority and 2D is the highest priority, then my vote would be for the JVC. If you want the best of all the categories, then I'd vote for the HW55. Tough decision I know but I can tell you that you'll be really happy with either of those projectors!
If you went with a two projector set up using the W1070....you could use the BenQ for sports, gaming as well as 3D. It would nicely compliment the JVC
