Two pipe flanges, a threaded nipple, a piece of plywood, 4 metric screws, and 4 springs that the screws can slide inside the springs, and some black paint and you have yourself a mount for maybe $12.

Oops, forgot that you will need 8 wood screws (or maybe 6 wood screws and 2 bolt and anchor systems) to secure the pipe flanges. $13.

I've sold quite a few of these with absolutely no problems. I had one returned but for personal reasons. Projector has been one of the most reliable and liked projectors at it's price point.

If interested, feel free to contact us.

Back in the day, MW2 meant MechWarrior 2. Today it means Modern Warfare 2. So... which is it?

i've seen people to this route with amazing results. I'm sure you can use the search function and come up with some good pics.

How much of an upgrade would a RS25 be over the HD250 in a light control room with dark ceilings/walls and carpet?
post #1746 of 1856
I want to purchase one to avs but not sure if I must use the regular site as I am in canada. Sales guy are not replying my message and I don tvwant to miss it.
Ultimately, I wonder if I should go with hd250 or rs15, as I don t need interpolation. I looks like hd250 is more reliable with time.

Please abs guys answer me...

Thanks Benito but it looks like I missed the deal, slept on it and missed out.

I see the B-stock RS15 for $1,899. Is that the same projector as HD250 ?

I believe the RS10/ HD350 is suppose to be the same basically. Like the above poster, I was interested in it but "beware the pink line". Seems to be the complaint in the RS15 user forum.

I'm interested in the RS25 b-stock but just wonder if it wouldn't be better to spend a little more money and get the RS45 or AE7000 projector.

The RS15 is actually a step up from the HD250 so if you get a solid unit it's definitely worth the current AVS price.

Yeah those b-stock jvc projectors are a good deal and it's rare for us to have b-stock JVC.

Benito
post #1752 of 1856
no more hd250, let get a rs15. How can be sure to get a solid unit? I believe it is like gambling.
post #1753 of 1856
Are you going to have more at the avs store or are you all sold out.

You have nothing to worry about, both AVS and JVC will stand behind the product. You get fantastic AVS customer service and a 2 year warranty from JVC. Read the forums and you'll see that AVS takes great care of its customers. I too am now considering the RS15 even though I wanted the slightly less expensive HD250 and the last concern on my mind is 'will I be stuck with a dud', AVS will insure that does not happen (I can assure you).

Best of luck,
Jason

The RS15 "Pink Band" issue is something not to gamble with. Just go to the RS15/HD550 thread and see for yourself and read what others are saying. Thats the benefit of having a store to buy these things and having a forum attached to it. I had the RS15 in my shopping cart last night at AVScience and then studied up on this defect and it is too prominent to ignore so I went with the HD250. The whole optical block has to be replaced which is a $5000 replacment part. You better be within your two year warranty if this happens or you got a paper weight. If you are within your two years, you will find that some people have been waiting for their projector for over three months because this part comes from Japan and as we all know, Japan is busy. Some people are completely walking away from JVC because of the RS15 issues. JVC customer service is also less desirable according to some AVS'ers. Here is the source of my info.

Read it then make a decision. Who knows, you could possibly get a flawless unit and never have a problem. Just a heads up.
post #1756 of 1856
Just about all projectors have their own issues to consider so by all means do your research (as suggested). I have personally gone through 3 of one projector and 5 of another before getting a solid unit, yeah it happens. My point is that AVS will take care of you within their return window if you are unhappy or have an issue. I was not implying that there are NO possible issues to consider.

Aside from that I would guess that some of these B-stock units may have been victims of the issue mentioned and already serviced/fixed... IDK but would have to guess it's possible (unless B stock does not include refurbs).

"B-Stock" is a little discerning in regards to info on your particular projector:

Background on your projector
Lamp hours
What was wrong with it if there was an issue

None of the listed are known at the time of purchase and at all for that matter. The only prayer you have is that beautiful two years warranty. KEEP YOUR RECEIPT. I CAN'T STRESS THAT ENOUGH.

I havn't heard of the "Pink Band" issue with the HD250's as of yet or I havn't gone back enough in this thread to find out. I've been two weeks without a projector and I'm going through withdrawals. My wife says I need theropy. I said I need a projector which is my theropy.

I did the jump and ordered a rs15. No more hd250...
I hope it will be ok abd i believe with the price we get it, it will be keep a good value on the market to sale it in a couple of years for a descent price when 3d and high end pj will reach a low price and technology will have made a jump forward.

I hav ethe impression that if I compare the spec of the rs15 and the today 3-4000 $ range pjj, there is not a tremendous gap in term of performance. Everything is improved but rs15 image is still competitive. maybe there is some additionnal gadget.

My main concern is with this colour satured issue. As i understand, it is possible to fix this by using an external scaler. As I am usint an HTPS, is possible to do this color correction by usisng the HTPC?

I thought the RS15 had CMS unlike the HD250?
post #1760 of 1856
no, it is the rs25 who has the cms, but the price gap is almost 700$. the rs15 has the interpolation in addition of the hd250.

How will this perfrom on a 130-135" diagonal 2.40 CIH screen? For those of you who have it with similiar setup how far is your PJ from the screen?

I have mine mounted ~16 feet from a 140" wide (not diagonal) scope screen. Plenty of light. You will have no problem with yours as it is smaller.

I just received my rs15 b stock from avs. Very fast, only 2 days. But I am a bit disappointed because I asked for a ground trnasport in Canada, but they missed it.

At the end of the day, this pj cost me about 2140$ + 280$ custom fee = 2420$. I wonder if it is still a very good deal, when a new hd250 would have cost me about 300$ more...

With those numbers you could have bought a JVC RS45. Sorry didn't mean to pour salt in a open wound.

For you fellows with friends and relatives that live close to the border. It would be worth the drive, to order and ship to a friend..sheeesh..they really stick it too you fellows!
post #1767 of 1856
I have family in us' so I have no problems. I've purchased 3 p4000. and 1 jvc 250., but for many others , not so easy. They have to really pay.
post #1768 of 1856
a RS45 for $2400 .. really? That sounds somewhat optimistic .. as that would be 1K off MSRP on a projector that just dropped 1K from the previous model.

Now if you had said a used RS40 .. well then OK.
post #1769 of 1856
Is it best to use the internal test patterns on the HD 250 or use the AVS disk to check for pixel adjustment? When I go into the HD 250 service menu and look at the patterns, pixels look fine. Using the AVS disk the vertical blue is off about 1/2.

I don't think you are far off. call AVS for the pre-order pricing on the RS45.
