I am taking a few notes from others reviews, so keep that in mind. I personally haven't seen both projectors in the same setting.
Very few projectors can match the black level of the JVC's, but nowadays most are so close you'd be tough to tell the difference without a direct AB.
The VW95 has gotten really good reviews and I personally think it's one of the best 2d projectors for the money right now. I'd be sporting one if it weren't for the limited throw ratio. The HC9000 is really another very nice contender that other than a few minor quibbles, throws a beautiful 2d picture. It has some killer placement flexibility allowing you to mount in pretty much anywhere. These can be had brand new on closeout for under 3k right now. Mits has been very reliable in the past.
