JVC RS400/X5000 vs Sony VPL-HW65ES

Hi folks,

I am torn between picking the Sony VPL-HW65ES or the JVC RS400/X5000. I do game online a LOT. I am not too worried about 4K but it would be nice to watch content now but not a deal breaker as most content is 1080P anyways. I can get the JVC for USD$ 4050 incl taxes and Sony for USD$2735 incl taxes brand new from authorised dealers in New Zealand. I can afford both. This will be my first projector purchase in a light controlled room with 135" AT screen. 3D content may be watched sometime but certainly not a must have. Which would you recommend considering the price I can get both at. Is the JVC worth USD$1300 more than the Sony considering I can get Sony for cheap?

Thanks

That's a really nice price on the Sony and if gaming is your priority its low lag time is much better than the JVC.

Thanks. Going for the Sony VPL-HW65ES. For the price I am getting at, I can sell it after 2 years when native 4K projectors will be more readily available with confirmed standard for HDR and cheaper pricing.

Also in NZ where did you get that sort of pricing on the 65ES? I have found nothing remotely close to that.
