post #3661 of 3669

I have an "opportunity" to buy a new X70 for $4800 (manufacturer's warranty/return policy,etc..) ... is it still worth much being that it 2 years old.  I know many are still more fond of the e-shift 1 over the 2 tech?

Way too high. Call Mike or Craig and get a RS57 with new bulb, improved contrast, and intelligent iris for just a little more. If you contact them today you can still get in on preorder price.

I'd say that isn't really that great of a deal considering I bought an X90 for $3425 a few weeks ago. A good deal would be closer to the $3200

I still don't understand why the flagship model is so much more than the lower model. For thousands the X90 is just slightly better than the X70. It should be no more than $1000

If you want the best of the best hand picked parts, basically guaranteeing optimum performance, you need to pay the premium for it. I was happy with my X55R, only wishing for a slightly deeper black level. Once I saw the deal on this X90 I couldn't pass it up. In the end, once I sold my X55R, it was only a $300 upgrade. smile.gif

I do understand the entry model to the middle model, but not the middle model to the top. But sometimes you can get a great deal if you wait a year or two

Those middle models add other features that the base models don't have. For instance; eshift, a CMS, THX modes for better ootb color, fine pixel convergence error system, more savable lens memories, gloss finish chassis, motorized lens cover, Xenon lamp modes, a cinema filter, a second iris at the lamp, auto-calibration software, and most importantly the middle models have higher contrast and get the top 20% (and the flagship gets the top 2% iirc) of manufactured parts so you're basically guaranteed better lens samples, better D-ILA panels, ect for a better overall product. A lot of what I've mentioned is software based and is something they just don't give you on the base model to entice you to upgrade to the higher end models, but by and large, image quality can be very similar albeit less overall contrast within the image on the base model compared to the higher end models JVC offers. The base model and entry eshift model offer consumers some of the best 2D image quality out there at a very attractive price. For a competitive image from a DLP projector expect to pay almost double the price if not more.

Thank you for the reply.  I am stuck on a $4K budget.  Seegs - I have been following you along the whole way, since I purchased my Mits HC-5 a month or so ago.
