I am currently torn between buying a jvc rs20 or a epson 3010. Someone locally is selling the rs20 for 1000 with about 1300 hours. And another person is selling the epson 3010 for the same price but with like 10 hours. I don't really care that much about 3D, I just want a really clear and crisp picture. I also heard that the jvc is not that bright. So can someone give me some advice.

The jvc might have a better overall image, while the epson will be a light cannon that isn't quite an "ultra contrast" pj. The jvc might be the better deal, if it's in good working order, but bulb costs may be a bit higher? 1300 hrs isn't alot on a pj, but I'd make sure I could see it working. Also, be aware the Epson will be limited in it's placement due to it's lack of "lens shift". Only 10 hrs on it? Kinda makes me wonder?

The jvc isn't bright compared to the epson torch, but it's reasonable enough in a light controlled room with a proper screen, size and throw distance.

I think for $1k, I'd throw out the used Epson, and instead consider a new Benq 1070 however, if you have no issue with a dlp.

The jvc also has the optical block replaced by jvc. Is that a good thing?

Well, maybe it won't get the "pink stripe" issue for a while at least? http://www.avsforum.com/t/1451654/attention-magenta-or-any-colored-stripe-defect-on-their-jvc-projector
