Well, I'll be the first to let you know that this won't be an easy decision. It really depends on your viewing preferences. If you watch mostly 2D bluray, think of 3D as a bonus and just for fun, and are a casual sports fan then the JVC x70 is your best choice. The jvc has the best black levels and contrast, excellent color, and an overall wonderful film-like image that no projector under 10k can match for 2D IMO. The colors are great on both projectors and are a tie IMO. If you like great 2D performance, love 3D, are a sports maniac, and hardcore gamer then the Sony vw95 is your best pick. The Sony makes excellent 2D and most people would love it however, it still cannot match the JVC for blacks, contrast, and that film-like image. The Sony has great 3D and is better than the jvc, and it is also better for sports than the jvc because the image is more dynamic and "pops" , which is perfect for sports. The lag response time is better on the Sony which means it is more ideal for a gamer. The JVC is fine for casual gamers though. You can think of the Sony picture as a huge plasma HDTV and the JVC picture as the closet to true film.
So if you want the best all around projector get the Sony. If you want a projector that is the best for 2D movies and very good at other things get the JVC. I personally am just a film buff so my choice would be the JVC, but that's me. Hope this helps. Do more research if you are still unsure.
