Sony VPL-VW65ES or JVC RS 400/X5000
I am seriously tossing between the 65 and either the X5000 or 7000.
I went to demo the 5000 against the 7000 today. I wasn't all that impressed with the 5000, with e-shift on there was just way to much image noise for my taste and the shadow details were not as impressive I though it would be, My 40ES is much sharper looking. The 7000 on the other hand was quite impressive and had minimal noise present. I then went to demo the Sony 520ES and while it had a little worse black detail it had no inherent image noise whatsoever on upscaled content and displayed a very natural looking image. Since that is out of my budget I am seriously considering the 65ES, I would get it Isf calibrated. I am really not sure what to do, I wasn't all that impressed with the 5000 but the 7000 is more than I am prepared to pay right now, on the other hand I am also not sure whether I really need HDR and UHD capability for the next 6 months or so when I can upgrade again. Also I use the PJ for about 30% gaming as well so that is an important factor too. I can get the 65 and the 5000 for the same price. Really can't make up my mind.
Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
