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...

sometimes walls are not perfectly straight either. If you engage keystone no matter how little the entire image needs to be rescaled. you can most easily see it if you connect the pj to your computer...

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....

I agree with seegs. The jvc might have a different look that you don't appreciate but how did you establish that it is due to the lens and not something else??? Lcos has a special look but that has...

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...
