I can control the light very well, it's basically dark at night (cave dark) and a little light seeps in during the daytime. I'm not a gamer, so it's purely movies, tv and sports (i watch a decent amount of sports). What do y'all recommend:
-Epson 5020 and a I found a new JVC DLA-RS50u for the same price
-Epson 5010 and Benq W7000 are about the same price and 20% - 25% less than 5020/RS50u
-the JVC 45/46s and Sony's were above this pricing, so i crossed them off the list...
I'm selling my RS45 with less than 50 hours on it. I am going into a much larger theater room and will be going
into a much bigger system overall. Anyway it is flawless, I have the 3D emitter and 4 pairs of glasses . I can save
you a bunch of money if the JVC RS45 is a contender. Under 10K there is not much better 2D. 3D is a tad dimmer
than others in the range but by no means poor. If you get a proper 3D screen , keep the projector closer to the screen
and do not exceed 100" in screen size you will be very happy. Alternatively you could get a high gain screen and the 3D
image will be substantially brighter.
I love 3D when it is done right( Avatar etc.) but I watch 95% 2D and the RS45 will sit on the top of the heap in that category.
PM me if you want to consider. I'm not in a hurry and have yet to list the unit to date.
