JVC RS4910 Worth Double The Epson 5025UB

I sent the Sony 40ES back, and once the refund went through was going to get the Epson 5025UB. But now, I "possibly" have the option to get a JVC RS4910 for essentially double the price ($1700 for...

With mine, it will change between different presets on its own depending on the source ( start up a movie and it jumps to reference, playing a game it switches to game). When its doing that, see if...

I tried a Silverticket grey before getting my Elite grey. The Silverticket hotspotted terribly, and the whole screen shimmered. They even replaced the material and the second was the same way. Also...

Would it be needed, probably not. But it would still ultimately lower the black level. If you have brightness to spare with your setup (a dedicated theater room doesn't need a lot of lumens) then I...

No Im not keeping the Sony. I just did that to try it on the new white screen instead of the grey I had. To me blacks were fine on the grey, but not dark on the white. With the ND4 filter, they were...

I agree that at MSRP it would be tough to choose SONY. Which is why SONY is aggressive and discounts it often. Even now if you look hard dealers have open box or demo unit you can snag for way lower...

77mm is enough to cover the lens, and just use a couple little strips of scotch tape to hold it on (from the edge of the filter to the focus ring).

Here are a couple cell pics of an ND4 filter on...

I wont be able to compare the 5025UB to the 5030UB, but will be able to compare the 5025 to the Sony and my HC2030 when I get it.

Don't remember if you said what screen you have, but iirc in the picture it was white, right? Maybe try a grey one?

The Sony helped a little bit (but was defective and is going back). The white material has no sparkle or hot spot, but has spots all over it that I cant get out.

If you use it 4hrs a day, every single day, and get one of the Epsons with the free bulb, even in high power that's 2000 days (5.5 years).

Why led projector? They aren't that good, at least not yet.


For $1500 range the Epson 5025UB is $1700 but comes with a second lamp worth $250-300, so I'd count that one as under $1500. Its...

As I stated earlier the Sony was a true night and day difference over my HC2030 which is very similar to the w1070.

Even still I suggest giving the 5025ub a try at least. With the bulb its $1000...

Fan noise would be less then the W1070 on the Epson, and at your distance wouldn't be an issue.
