Comparing the HW50 / Epson 5020 / JVC RS55 color uniformity, the JVC take the win without a doubt. It's practically flawless on my particular copy. I hope to see the same performance from the upcoming models.
Hello. I'm on my first 5020 and it replaced the Panasonic 8k because I had a noticeable pink area in the left corner. My 5020 does have the slight pink to white in certain display modes, like THX, however it is at least a uniform transition from top to bottom (very slight pink to white). Personally, I like the Cinema mode as it has a much more uniform white display. Not as good as my JVC RS40 that I sold recently, but the black levels to my eye seem just as good and the sharpness is definitely better.
Zombie, did you go through the manual LCD panel alignment process? I did it a couple of times with very good results.
As far as pixel structure goes, I'm not sure why people get hung up on this so much. Granted, as mentioned before, it all depends on your eye sight, distance to screen and screen size. But, that can be said for any technology right now. Sure, LCOS has better pixel fill, but sitting too close still does not yield a pleasurable experience. You can sit closer, but then you notice that it's not as sharp as the LCD or DLP projectors. If you go to a state of the art movie theater with a Sony 4K or 3 chip DLP projectors and get too close to the screen, you can see pixel structure and the holes in the screen. My point is, it's all relative. I went and looked at the pixel structure pictures Zoombie posted comparing the epson and sony and in the cropped picture of captain america's face, what I noticed the most was the better sharpness of his face with the epson. Sure I could see more pixel structure, but I would never sit that close to the screen (13 feet away, 120 inch screen).
Question - which technology has less motion blur?
