I'm also considering going for one of these models used. What seems to be the failure rate of the optical block, as that seems to be the biggest worry.
Also, to any that had one, how would you compare the projector to the Benq w6000? That's my other top consideration.
I'm looking for something with a good 700-800+ best mode lumens, for dealing with dim lighting conditions, or even light ambient light on occasion. Both jvc and Benq are good there with a nod to Benq
But my consideration comes to jvc in terms of black levels with from my understanding the jvc will completely cream the Benq, and on movies and especially sci-fi those blacks will be big to me I think if it's really a big gap between the two.
Will th overall image quality be better on the jcv as well?
Interesting decision overAll
Benq= brighter, sharper, low input lag for games, new or refurb with 1 yr warranty, cms, blacks barely make arts review cut.
Jvc= bright "enough", class act blacks, better pq?, but input lag looses ability to computer game.
