Yah, I'm not sure how the comparison would come out. The RS-45 would be much sharper than the previous LCOS I owned (Sony vw70), so this is going to make it tougher.
I expect the Mits may win in bright scenes. I really don't even need to own the Mits hc4000 when I do the shootout, the image is forever etched into my memory as long as I watch the same content I have always compared with. It would be helpful if I had one to compare directly, but don't really need it, I have so many reference points I can use.
One thing the JVC might ride away with is in the color department, I noticed the LCOS technology has more vivid colors sort of. The Sony beat the Mits in this, but the problem was the Sony's sharpness couldn't hang on when it needed it the most, not to mention all the artifacts in the Sony's processing. No idea if the JVC has any of these same artifacts, possibly as the JVC driver is said to have MUCH more image noise than DLP, this might make me not really like the JVC.
The Mits to date has the cleanest image I've seen yet, but the Sanyo came pretty close, so I am guessing if LCD can be that clean, LCOS should be able to as well, even if the older Sony failed in that department.
