I wouldnt expect most projectors to last 10.000 hours with good image quality. Probably not 5.000 hours either. There are of course examples that have been running many hours, but I wouldnt expect it...

To me the sharpness differences between the jvc and epson are so small it wouldn't factor in at all for me. However, the color looks way too cold on the epson, but Ekki's last post explains that.

I can just make out the pixel grid in a bright uniform image from my seat, which is about 1.1 screen widths away. I use a JVC x35. Since the interpixel gap that I see is much smaller than the pixel...

I think your aspect ratio setting on your tv or box is wrong. That looks like a 16:9 image that has been squeezed vertically. If that is the case you should be able to remove the black bars on the...

Read the review from Cine4home. They measured the lumen output when calibrated to DCI. You are right that it is not as big of a loss as the Sony, but close. Cine4home said the Epson lost 25%....

Just a thought. The Epson doesn't use the same light source as the Sony, so it likely doesn't have the same unfiltered spectrum. If it has more saturated natural primaries it doesn't need to filter...

Seegs,

But it appears the Epson might have PQ improvements over the x500. The e-shifted image has been reported to be significantly sharper than the JVC and closer to the Sony native 4K. We...

It might be that the screen is not completely level or have completely straight edges. I would tilt the projector slightly so you get an image that fits the screen borders without using any keystone....

The laser doesn't give you pixel perfect on/off. The laser just replaces the lamp as light source and it is still the r-lcd panels that modulate the light and determine the contrast. So you won't be...

Don't forget that a long throw will reduce the light output so if you base your calculations on something measured at short throw the light output will be overestimated.

Hi seegs.
I get your point but I think you simplify it too much. A stable light source also means a stable accurate calibration. If you don't calibrate yourself this is a huge plus. The jvc can...

I would stick with buying new releases. BD already looks good. It's a different thing with dvds which I cringe at when watching. I would be willing to pay a premium of perhaps 25% or so for 4K. I...

david said the irises were partly closed. native contrast according to cine4home is 26k:1 vs 31k:1 for the x500 and x700 respectively with fully open irises. Such a small difference is difficult to...

I believe you can get a JVC X35/RS46 for that. It has lens memory and will best the epson in PQ as far as I know.
