post #121 of 3559
@Zombie
I'll check it out when I get my JVC in, but by that time 3D might be outdated and I might be watching 9D realivision

@Mark
Yuppers, but I was speaking in terms of within a realistic price range of a previous model, hence replacing it with something in a comparable price.

This is a 3D concert with Peter Gabriel filmed in London with a full orchestra. It's a little slow @ first, but 1/2 way through it's excellent. The 3D is very cool, taking you through the various orchestra members, it feels like your sitting right next to them.

tonight is the 4th time i'm watching it.. most 3D titles go 2 rounds tops.

It's a great title...

More to come when i get off work.......

Congrats my friend! Looking forward to your impressions.

Hey thanks for the heads up. Sounds cool. Will check it out. BTW the title you linked to on Amazon is NOT the 3D version.

oops, thanks!

http://www.amazon.com/Peter-Gabriel-...0204789&sr=1-3

that is the 3D version. If you have a good sound system, this is a 3D video worthing demoing to friends who are music fans. 'Red Rain' is the track to remember.

The 1 star review on amazon had me laughing, not that it means anything at all, just that it was funny.

it's not a typical rock concert, you have to have some appreciation of a modern orchestra re-arranging his classic music. if not, I could see how someone expecting a typical PG concert would be disappointed.

I am pretty rounded in musical taste, so I'll see if I can grab it on Netflix bluray or something or rent it.

So if anyone has some comparisons of the 90 and 95, it would be great to read.

I'm late posting my final thoughts elsewhere on the panny vs the jvc, but between work and and an unexpected hospitalization, I've been unable to do so...


thrang

I had the 90ES to and has just recieved the 95ES so in some days, I will tell you the difference AMO.

But I have to say that my experimence with the 90ES was a little bit different ( and better ) than yours:

I agree on the dimness and ghosting in 3D ( but did buy a 2.8 gain screen who help a lot on the dimness )
Regarding the motionflow on the 90ES, was it working perfect ( I did like the low setting most ) and I never had any red/green fringing ( only the DFI mode 1 did do something like that you saw ) - never in FI on eather low or high. I actully think I remember you mention it that time in here ( and showed some video off it ? ) and I did look specifikt after it ! but never had it

I have not played very much with the 95ES for now, but the motionflow looks like the same as mine 90ES - no red/green fringing in movements ( I never use DFI Mode 1 for anything ) and everything is looking very good.

Is there anything I should try specifict for you ?


regards

So far all of the preliminary reports have been pretty good. Looking forward to reading what you found. Not one single report of bright corners.

I am tempted by the reported quietness of the machine. My RS20 is mounted near my head - HP screen - and even on normal mode it's distractingly loud.

I've have an RS20 for going on 3 years now. It is mounted *directly* overhead, about 3-4 feet above. I have to say that on low lamp this is one of the quietest projectors I have ever owned. I am never distracted by or reminded by the noise. If only my PS3 was this quiet, but don't get my started on that! When was the last time you cleaned your air filter on the RS20?

Since you've replaced a sony 90 for the jvc 50, how do you find the 50 compared to the 90 with motion blur, about same, slightly worse, obviously worse or holy crap worse?

Based on a lot of people's opinions, the VW90 (and the VW95) has better motion and less motion blur than any JVC projector.
post #146 of 3559
lovingdvd, as a RS20 owner myself looking to upgrade, I'm interested in your reasons for moving from JVC to Sony VW95 and why you are not looking at the new JVC series (eg. RS55). Although the VW95 sounds like a great projector, it won't have the same brightness or contrast as the JVC RS55.

Mike and lovingdvd

Just checked mine today, and it has NO bright corners - actully it is better then my 90Es was ( wich was OK, but not perfect ).

I tested it with both Iris off and auto 1/2.


BTW tested fast the memory settings for size,shift and focus and it works very good IMO

Thank you DJ!

Do you know if there are at least 3 memory settings? I'd prefer to have one for each: 2.35, 1.85, and 1.78.

I can chime in on motion in general, but not specifically on a JVC vs. a Sony.

Motion is a funny thing with projectors. I've had several projectors setup side-by-side (although never a JVC and a Sony next to each other). You notice motion issues a lot more when two projectors are side-by-side then you do when watching them one after another. You still see it, but your eyes (well my eyes at least) eventually adjust to inferior motion after only a couple hours of watching a single projector.

I had a Mits hc4000 DLP next to a Sony vw70 next to a Sanyo z5 setup at the same time. The motion on the 6+ year old z5 was horrendous looking at times, almost like frames were missing (ahh well probably because they were in a sense), and I had no FI or anything on these projectors, so I am talking just pure handling of HD content (non-movies, non 24 fps).

DLP looks better, and even that older Sony was a little closer to DLP then a much older Sanyo, but it's not something I'd focus my purchasing decision on unless you are a gamer or huge sports fan. But, that's just me. I think the motion has improved somewhat on all these projectors over the years that it really isn't as big of an issue as it was 5+ years ago. When I tested a newer LCD next to the older Sony, I couldn't really tell a difference between the two, but the newer LCD looked slightly better at motion (probably was seeing something else and had nothing to do with the motion really). DLP still has a large advantage for motion purists.
