I can't because only the HW10 was set up at CEDIA and so any direct comparison would be at best lightly informed.
Without drawing on actual picture-quality comparisons, I'd say one thing almost immediately, though. Are you an upgrader? If so, get the HW10. There is room for improvement that will likely be achieved over the next year or two. If you are looking to set-and-forget for a while, the extra investment might be justified now, however.
I do think having the inexpensive and more expensive Sony along with both JVCs in a 4-way shootout would be fascinating for the nitpickers.
