Noah Wiseman/Samuel was terrific; great for rental.

$80 pop-up book kind of makes the $7.99 rental a bargain.

I also jumped around the Sony and JVC camp, and used to own a RS20. If motion seems to bother you, then Sony is a good alternative. Just got rid of my HW30 but stayed with my RS45 due to contrast. ...

I have the later model, JVS RS45/X30 and the Sony HW30. They are both good for the 120" screen, while mine is 106.

The JVC is for movies and dark stuff like sci-fi while the Sony is great for...

I saw it in the W700, so I'm sure ditto for the 1070. I've not seen a DLP w/o RBE yet, but some are less than others. I can live with it but found the dynamic iris and the fan rather noisy,...

Try to see if our sponsor has any b-stock Sony or JVC if you are Ok with LCoS.

Yeah, I still remembered my HD1000 fondly, many years and many projectors ago.

Not sure if it matters, I used to own a HW10 which was whisper quiet, comparing to the newer BenQ W7000. The less expensive 1070 is even more noisier. I still saw RBE in the W7000. The big BenQ...

The Sony 4k is above my pay grade.

I had a Panny ae2000 at one time but did not find it as sharp as the Sony HW20 at the time. I'll advise the OP to stay with the LCoS camp, either a JVC or a...

Amen! That was the problem. Once the transmitter was connected to the Sony, the Panny realized that the pj is indeed 3D worthy.
