Hey zombie, how does the black levels on the Mitsubishi compare to the JVC-RS45? If I went with the Mitsubishi over the JVC, would the black levels still be a big jump over the Optoma HD20? Also, regarding lag, would you say a racing game is playable on the Mitsubishi? What about a first person shooter? Also, do you know what the manufacturer warranty is on the Mitsubishi? How is Mitsubishi's reliability generally considered against JVCs? I am reading all these reports of failing bulbs on the JVC and that has me scared, I am not made of money, and I really don't want another lemon projector. My HD20's motherboard has already failed twice and the last time it nearly cost $400 to fix. Sorry to bombard you with all these questions, but this is a big purchase for me, and I want to get it right.
