JVC IN THE HOUSE!!!
Received my RS1 on Tuesday and finally hooked it up last night. I had to wait an extra day to let it thaw out(long cold trip up here). It nearly killed me and I almost gave in to temptation, however I managed to resist and survive.
First impressions are WOW!!!
Fan noise..what fan noise?? Even in high mode my wife and I struggled to hear it, and she actually thought it was turned off, before I pointed out that it was indeed on. Much less noise than my previous Optoma HD7100, which I thought was not that bad in low fan mode.
No dead pixels..no pixels!! No shading, no convergence issues that I have seen yet, but will test this out this weekend. No light leak and no bright corners that I have observed so far, but again will test more. I have only watched HD-TV last night for a couple of hours, feed through my DVDO-VP30 at 1080i. I have yet to test out standard DVD and HD-DVD.
Color excellent, black level excellent, contrast excellent, sharpness excellent and brightness excellent. I am projecting onto a 100" grey screen from about 10'3" with very little of the horizontal and vertical lens shift used.
I will post a full review with pics and calibration results on my site in a couple of weeks. However I am in no hurry, as I want to calibrate it and get to know it and enjoy it more first before the review.
Overall I am a very happy camper..JVC well done...finally a projector I may keep around for a few years or more!!
