JVC's eshift system does a remarkable job. These XPR models are not true 4K either, but use a similar eshift method that the JVCs use to achieve more pixels on screen. But in practice, with your own eyes from a seated distance, you rarely can see a difference in resolution. The XPR models have the benefit of having more native resolution, but due these DLP units having poor contrast, the image looks washed out and flat by comparison when you put the two images side by side on screen. Unfortunately, the extra native resolution does not make up for it's serious lack of contrast by comparison. The difference is shocking. Again, from someone who's actually seen these images, right now, unless you can afford the JVC RS4500 or Sony 5000ES, an eshift JVC has best image money can buy. The UHZ65 has the same exact placement flexibility as the UHD65 (which means it's extremely limited). These XPR models are also plagued with terrible motion issues such as judder with 24p content. These XPR models seem to be too little too late. I also wouldn't count too much on this model being a winner for home theater enthusiasts as it's meant to be for commercial/professional installs which means a heavy focus will be placed on brightness, not contrast, which is what home theater units usually place emphasis on.
I disagree . The Sony VW675 has much better delineated image than the RS JVC600 and I could see it on the screen 100% of the time from a seated distance when doing critical viewing . I did side by side for over 400 hours with these . You want a better image no need to spend triple the VW675 cost or higher to get there . The Sony also benefits from not having the business of image from the PWM process the image is calm and natural from having all pixels on the screen all the time.
