Both have v good images, but the Sony VW1000ES is much brighter than any of the JVCs. Subjectively, it's not really close.

It will be but the bulb will dim with accumulated hours and with a big perfed screen, plan on replacing the bulb guessing at about 1000 hours. Then again your eyes get very used to gradual dimming and you might not even notice it much until you replace the bulb.

Having a halfway decent light meter means never having to say " I'm sorry ( it's so dim ) " !!

Ya, 900 lumens on a 126" wide screen with a real gain of .9 = 13 foot lamberts. 1500 lumens = 21.80 foot lamberts.
