The G15 is a 440 watt light canon. Is the RS1 going to look dim by comparison? There is total light control in the room. The ceiling is Kodak gray. The walls are all dark non-reflective cloth.

He is asking $500. Should I hold out for a brighter unit? I am sold on JVC DILA .. so I would only move up in that product line.

Thanks
I bought the projector. He brought it over and we ran it in my theater and it looks fantastic. Got it all mounted last night in the same position as the G15. It might be a little dark on some movies in regular power mode but there are no issues in high power mode. I have not done any real setup or calibration yet ... just blown away by the difference in resolution and black level from the G15. Had to run an HDMI cable to the computer .. but now I can also connect DirecTV. Best $500 I have spent in a long time.

How does the RS1 compare to my current Benq w1070?
Local seller has one for $500, not sure how many hours on it yet.
Is this worth dealing with or should I just save for a Sony 40es or the like?

Since the hours can be reset the usage time may not be accurate. I would ask the seller if he ran it on high or low power mode. High power mode reduces the D-ILA panels life span due to higher heat levels. When exposed to higher heat, the image may have a strong green cast to it...

If it's not a BIG screen, it's not a theater...

Sounds like I'll just skip it. Not worth hassling with such an old projector

I was just wondering if anyone could help out with a quick question I have on my RS2. I bought it without the lens shift mechanism then I bought the part straight from JVC, it appears to be the correct part but doesn't connect with anything. I will attach pictures of what JVC sent me, mine and tag.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

After replacing my RS1's bulb twice through AV Science, I bought my next bulb from Lamp Source. That one started flickering just before it hit 1000 hours, which is disappointing.

Now it looks like AV Science doesn't carry the BHL5009-S anymore - they recommend its "upgrade," the BHL-5012S. Their price for that is almost a 50% markup from the BHL5009-S.

Does anyone know anything about the BHL-5012S? In what way is it upgraded?

How long did the BHL5009-S bulb from AV Science last?

These are the only places i have found that older bulb at:

I replaced the AV science ones (as well as the original) when they hit the recommended 2000 hours, just to be safe - they all worked fine when retired.
