I got an X75 a few months ago (moved from HD-950) and have had pretty good experience with it so far. In the plus column it has the obvious fantastic blacks and contrast ratio, great lens, bulb holds brightness VERY well (only have 140 hours so far and no loss at all). In the minus column it seems to have worse motion handling than my 950. In certain pan speeds it is pretty bad, and perhaps I am more sensitive to it, but I find it very distracting and pulls you out of the film quickly. This of course is my main complaint, the other being I had a bad convergence sample. The saving grace was that the supplied correction in the per pixel and zone controls made it almost a non issue. This of course could not be an issue at all if you get a good sample.
I also just had the opportunity to try 3D and it was better than I expected. Still find little use for it and I got my glasses/emitter for free, so just use it as the gimmick that I find it is.
If you can I would see if you can sample what JVC and Sony have to offer to see if the contrast of the JVC is more desirable than the motion handling of the Sony.
