Anthony,

I've read the same but since I've never viewed the USA versions, can't give you an answer. I own both the Planet Earth and Life sets from BBC, both sets have a mixture of 1080P and...

Anthony,

Agreed on the screen being white and little gain employed. As a purist, I'm not a fan of creating "perceived" black levels and using the screen to modify what the pj is projecting....

There actually is a small portion of the PJ market in which 1080P through VGA or BNC is the only option - those who use older CRT projectors that did not have HDMI and who have either not purchased...

Hi Anthony,

The simple answer is yes, a computer video card can output 1920x1080 image. The problem is for copy protection purposes, 1080P blu ray from a VGA output is not supported. That was...

Agree with David. As long as you'll never need the higher lumen modes of the LG, the JVC at that price is your best image for dollar spent. The LG image is very similiar to JVC RS10, though not as...

Commoncents,

Would recommend either the LG or the JVC over the Panasonic. I've viewed all these projectors, the image simply does not pop on the Panny the way it does on the LG and JVC. The black...

Anthony,

JVC demonstrated this a couple of years ago using a couple of RS2's and a Sensio 3D processor. Everything has to be perfectly calibrated the same and projected at same points and of...

Was checking on the color stream being passed through to the LG. It's 36bit from the PS3 to the receiver and then out to the LG. I thought that was considered "Deep Color" but saw another thread on...

Hi mcstiles,

I recently viewed "Wild Oceans", an IMAX Blu ray. Lots of *very fast* motion, at 60 frames per second the projector was great, no jitter and saw little if any motion blur. The black...
