In his first look review of the Sharp, Art posted in his blog that the 3D is quote: "Dim!". He also posted that there's a little crosstalk and other minor artifacts.
Quote: "In other words, I'll go out on a limb to say that in brightest mode, the Sharp does have the muscle to fill a 100" diagonal 16:9 screen with 3D content. (Though not a lot to spare)."
After 100-500 hours (a 20%-30% lumens drop), when what??? An 80" screen??? Accurate colors and great blacks are great, but lumens rules, IMO.
With an MSRP of $500 more than the RS40/X3 (5K vs 4.5K), and no lens shift, will anyone purchase the Sharp over the JVC???
If so, why???www.projectorreviews.com/blog/
