I think the trick is to place the projector so it's dead level and pointing straight at the centre of your screen. The adjust lend shift until the image is correctly placed.

The big question is, are JVC going to do for the X35 what Sony have done for the HW55 with the HW40.


Sony have well and truly thrown down the gauntlet. The X35 and HW55 are approaching £3k (UK...

Directors know their films will have most viewings in a multiplex or on an LCD television. By a long, long, long way - I suspect over 95%.

But here's the problem. You said "...why did they give the Optoma HD91 9/10 and the Sony HW50 8/10 and JVC X35 9/10 when they are in the same price point and the Sony and JVC totally destroys the...

That's simply not true.


Colour?


Motion handling?


On brightness, the HD91 is probably bright enough for smaller screens, and should remain so for much of its life. The Sony will beat...

Whatever the pros and cons, I'm heartily sick of the success the JVC marketing department has had with the phrase 'film like' when discussing black levels.

I suppose there are a few of reasons they don't mention it in the review.


One of those reasons is that it's blindingly obvious. There are some astonishing £1k (and sub-£1k) projectors out there...

Sorry, just read this.


There's a simple reason for this - they take price into account.


So if the build quality on a £1,850 projector is the same as on a £2,800 projector, the former will...

I don't think the 55 does in the UK.

I'm looking at the 40 and the 55.


The iris on the 55 may be an advantage, but I feel a £1k difference (UK prices £2.8K vs £1.85K) is excessive). Put simply, I' not convinced that the iris costs...

I'm not sure a 3-chip projector should look softer in most applications.
