Why do you think third party lamps cause BB failure?
I'm not saying your wrong, I just wonder what evidence you have.
I have never used at third-party lamp (yet at least) in my RS-45, but I do have...

I agree there are other choices, the main issue is budget though. The other choices often cost almost double the JVC. This highly limits what is out there for most of us. Demos are hard to tell, they...

According to this dealer, the bright corners issue is VERY difficult to predict whether it is improving, even after having seen multiple samples. Really he is more of an installer than a dealer, so...

The reason I call people out on this forum is because there is too much enthusiastic "the greatest thing in the world" talk sometimes. I do not mind people noting the appreciable differences that do...

You called me out first, and did so as if I were new here and didn't know what I was doing, so I then flat out told you I'm not new and I do know people that owned all these projectors. That is why I...

Here is what was said:

He was a dealer and has seen a few of them, why would I trust you over someone that I've known for years that has no hand in this game because he rarely even visits this forum?

I just asked someone I know that has one, and he said his RS-520 was the same sharpness as the RS-57 and RS-55, maybe the RS-520 is a tiny bit sharper at the grid (he said maybe, but barely). E-shift...

I haven't seen any variance of sharpness since the RS-45 to be honest. I've seen pretty much all the JVC's except this year. The RS-57/56/55/46/45 all looked about the same, other than sample...

It sounds like you had a mediocre convergence sample. I own a much older JVC RS-45 and it is tack sharp with a PC Desktop, pretty much DLP-like sharp. It has near perfect red convergence relatively...

I think the Epson does make more sense on a larger screen with its brighter torch modes.

Just dual stack two projectors, then at night turn one off. It will double the brightness. You need Lens Shift for this, the Benq's probably do not have enough.
Actually the two projectors don't...

If all factors were equal, I think most people would be very hard pressed to argue any case for LCD over DLP. I mean the pixel fill alone is an issue, and DLP is more consistent and film-like. The...

I'm not sure anyone knows if the contrast degradation is still an issue. Maybe, maybe not. I sound like a broken record, but the best high-end deals are used JVC's, though the throw length is a tiny...

Lamps on JVC's are hardly $500, and you can get OEM knock-offs that MIGHT be ok.
However, even the official lamps without the housing are under $200 from the right source, and with the housing just...

I agree. Anyone seeing rainbows on an LED is not seeing the same thing exactly as what you would see on a DLP anyhow. That is more of the LED trailing color effect, whereas it is more of a FLASH in...

The Sony's have potential contrast degradation, but they produce a more film-like image than the Epson.

You have to go to the used market to get good black levels for under $1000.

Even if you find a demo, it won't tell you enough. You need at least an hour with both projectors side-by-side probably, maybe longer.

Just buy the RS-520 already, if you don't like it, either return it or sell it. You probably won't even lose $300 on the deal if you don't like it.
Then buy something else and do it all over again....

Intrascene Contrast
Color Wheel Speed

No scientific study needed. It is a combination of those 3 factors that cause the problem. Even with a 4x...
