More often it's newer and/or higher end models that want a lot higher price.
being an x35 owner, my theory to this is it's because there's nothing for me to replace it with. the only 'improvement' i could make is a BIG leap in price, so some of those newer models (x500 for example). so instead of looking at a new projector, i'm stocking up on bulbs. there's nothing in the 3k range i've seen that would make me want to switch.

I agree with the last post. I have had a x35 for eighteen months now and it is a very pleasant surprise every time I switch on the projector and watch a film. Of the most recent films that have shown such beautiful pictures are Lucy and Jurassic Park in 3d and The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug extended version also in 3D.
In home entertainment it seems to me that there is nothing that comes close to a good projector and I wish that everybody could have and enjoy one.

FWIW, I got my i1D3/i1 Display Pro and ran a quick measurement on my Planar, and with stock settings the gamma tracked near perfect 2.2 and grayscale was dead flat, if a little off throughout the range. So there was definitely something "wrong" with my i1D2 and Spyder.

As for JVC, well I guess I'll see what they're all about, I should have an RS4910 sometime next week. I hope to be thoroughly impressed 350,000:1 dynamic should be noticeably different than 15,000:1 (Planar). From the X35 I could tell a "difference" in motion between the two, but I'd be hard pressed to call one "better". I'd say the X35 looked smoother, maybe due to slow refresh, but I didn't notice any motion smear, so maybe I'm just not sensitive to that.

The only small concern I have going in is lag. I do game, but it's all just recreationally, no competitive FPS, just some coop Halo/GOW/etc, Forza. I didn't notice anything with the X35 so hopefully the same is true of the 4910.

I went from an X35 to an X500 (I believe that is similar to the RS4910?). The DI makes quite a difference and the pixel gap is a lot less, so you should hopefully see what all the fuss is about wrt JVCs.

Zooming: Been there, done that, bought the lens, sold the lens...now using e-shift.

Hey everyone,

I have an opportunity to get an X35 for the same price as a Panny AE8000. The problem is, when I use the ProjectorCentral calculator, i'm told that i'll get 11FL with the X35, however when I use the Carlton Bale Calculator, it shows I will get 27 FL.

The odd thing is, that when I use the ProjectorCentral calculator with the X500 i'm given 23FL, yet the X500 has the same 1300 Lumens.

Will have a throw distance of 14-15ft and using a 130" 2.35 perforated screen. Room is light controlled. Anyone have any thoughts here?

The 8000 drops a significant amount of lumens when calibrated to D65. A good bit less than the RS46 which is around 900+ @ D65 (mid throw).

I have an RS46(X35) and have reviewed the Panasonic 8000, imo, the JVC is a better choice for a light controlled room. Are you set at that size or can you go down a bit?

Ohh dude, don't make that mistake. Stay AWAY from the Panasonic. I had trouble with my AE7000 and did a HUGE comparison between the AE8000 & RS46 (clicky)

(I'm running a 136" 2.35 screen and my RS46 is 15-16 feet or so, looks great, even in 3D)

Good point about losing lumens with calibration. The room will be light controlled, and the ceilings are black. Window will be plugged. I might go to 125", though that will depend on the screen manufacturer and whether they cut a 125 or a 130.

Is there any reason why the x500 would have a higher FL rating with the same lumen count?

I'd go to the X500, but it's hard to justify spending $5k on a projector when 4k is a generation or two away from being affordable.

Good to know. If you can light up a 136, than I should be fine with a 125-130 at 14-15 ft.

you can't go by the various calculators out there, this throws off a lot of folks looking to compare models.

The RS46/X35 has the same calibrated lumen output as the RS4910/X500 - a bit over 900 lumens @ D65 mid throw in high lamp.

If you can pick up the X35 for the same price as the 8000, I would quickly grab it.

To say it's an entirely different machine would be both factually accurate and metaphorically correct. I'm not going to go into too many details since I just got it out of the box and fired it up, so I've got no measurements or anything, but even in low lamp, the thing is bright, no light spill to speak of, great depth, and nice "correct" looking color temp and everything. So far it's just about what I was expecting, so I guess it's now off to the "serious" business of enjoying and seeing what all the fuss is about.

I saw the auction you won and in my head I thought geez someone got a good deal on the DLA-X35. Now that you have the RS4910 what do you plan to do with the "old" DLA-X35?

What information is there on ceiling mounts for this projector? I'd like to know what mount to buy and any info to "future-proof" an unfinished ceiling that will be finished soon at the future projector location...

I just installed my 4910 with an RPMA281 today, it worked quite well. Nicer than the RPAU I just hung my other projector from. From what I can tell, once you get an RPMA mount all you need to get in the future, for other projectors is the adapter plate, which is pretty nice.

I installed the rpma too- which kinda sucked because I had the old rpau mount. The rpau was supposed to be an universal mount but then jvc changed the projector size- no fault of Chiefs.

My point is that there is no guarantee that it work in the future.

I moved from a rs15 to an rs46 and wow what a difference. The colors and contrast and more importantly the motion is heaps better than the rs15!

I spent a lot of time in this thread readingthe reviews thru the pages- thank you guys for all the feedback.
