Are you asking if there is a lens cover on the 4910?
If so, the answer is yes. A manual one (which I personally prefer) and nicely designed too- very secure with some felt pads around the perimeter...

I would still go with the JVC.

1) E-Shift (if you need it) for that screen size and distance
2) Better native contrast ratio which an additional lens won't change (on the other pj)
3) Lens...

Just a follow up note on my particular 'comfort issues' with the Xpand glasses.

If you think you will be getting the 4910 at some point soon, this week is the time to order it because of the AVS deal which expires in a few days/end of month.
Even if it turns out to seem to be...

No. Not as silent with e-shift. In fact I posted about the whine (it's more like a higher pitched hum), and several people responded that they didn't hear anything.

I would have to agree.
I had/have a RS2 clone (which is a generation removed from the RS-20 isn't it?)
I've had the 4910 in for several weeks now and I definitely would not classify it as a "night...

You won't have black bars unless the content is actually 2.40 or 2.55 (like Ben Hur)
Most is around 2.35...and the black bars on a 2.55 movie on a 2.35 screen are negligible imo.

There is no way...

Just for clarity here- it sounds like people use the terms crosstalk and ghosting interchangeably. Are they interchangeable?

I had mine back about 12' and zoomed out to hit a scope screen that was around 94" wide with about a .9 gain. It was fine with a new lamp and for about the first 1500 hrs.

One way to look at the AVS deal going on with the 4910 right now- it will pretty much guarantee the pj putting out a brighter image, for a longer period for your initial buy in cost.
