Worth the upgrade?

Hi,


I currently have a JVC RS-40 and would possibly interested into the new model or last year model RS-4910.
I only listen 2D movie in totally black environment
Will I notice a improvement (night and day...) with the new one compare to the RS-40.
Or i wait for the 4K.... or i purchase a new bulb for my rs-40


thanks for your comments

The 4910 does have quite a few improvements. You might wander through the 4910 thread.

I've had a RS40 and a X500(same as RS4910). Buy a new bulb and wait as there was not enough improvement. The e-shift made image a little more smoother and the DI made black level a little darker during very dark scenes but it wasn't enough to justify the cost.

No single portion is "night and day" different but as Mike said, I think the culmination of all the improvements make for a decent step up in overall picture quality. There will be a step up in light output, native (and now dynamic) contrast, motion performance is a decent step up, 3D has less ghosting, and MPC and Clear Black can be useful to give the image a slightly sharper appearance and e-shift can help if you have seats particularly close to the screen as it effectively removes any visible SDE.
