Yah I went from a 22" to a 27", could have gone 29", but didn't want resolution higher than 1920x1080 due to development, and didn't want possible re-scale downsizing artifacts from higher res...

It makes me cry as I am a brightness junkie and I dislike buying lamps. Hoping JVC will pump the brightness up a bit in their next year or so, then I can go to an alternate screen. My 2.4 screen has...

Did anyone mention the two projector option to you, getting the JVC (maybe used with square trade warranty or AVS B-stock when available) and then a lower-end unit for gaming?

Isn't the lens still the same as it was in the RS-40/RS-45/RS-46. I saw no noticeable improvement in an RS-48 or RS-46 over my RS-45, actually my RS-45 had slightly better convergence and appeared...

Why else do you think JVC re-designed their entire lamp system (the cooling, electronics, ballast, everything), and then suddenly their lamps are lasting so much longer?
