What does this mean exactly - that outfits have copied the case design and are building pj's with cheaper older imaging chips inside?
Counterfeiters wouldn't have the manufacturing capability to build projectors that are actually perfectly functional copies of the current-generation chips, right - with e-shift, 4K inputs, etc. - right?
if they could copy the results, they'd be better off not calling them 'jvc' and branding their own legally.
I would assume that they only look the part
but what concerns me is the statement of not selling projectors online, cause that's about the only way to buy one in many cases... so i'm not sure what their definition of 'online' means. maybe they don't considering buying a projector from a store with a website as an 'online' purchase?
