TBH, I think I will miss the lost CR by going from the RS55 to RS4810. At least that is my expectation going into this. I don't expect it to be earth shattering but from my observations higher CR's tend to result in more image dimensionality. eShift2 may well make up for that tho...

If I even thought the 56 would run brighter at a calibrated D65 (who knows Goef... maybe they fixed Blue... and monkeys just flew out of my buttocks!), then I would still go for it and force my eyes to adjust to a -13 clamp. On my Seymour fabric it just seemed to lose the "pop" when running at anything lower than -10 (even though I love the added CR).

Hi All,

Any reccomendations on what screen to get ? ... im not sure whether i get a 115" diagonal cinemascope or a 120" diagonal 16:9.. will decide after i have projected on the wall and decide what size is good.

my throw will be about 3.7 meters and the room is full light controlled.

Im not sure what brand/type screen to get ...

Congrats!
Will be very eager to find out which screen you end up getting. I'm sort of in the same boat, first projector. Am still undecided if I will go with the X35 or X55. My seating distance will be 16 feet from the screen which will be 16:9 120".

Let us know how you like it. And which screen you end up getting.

thanks!

Congrats on your new impending purchase... you will be blown away this being your first JVC!

Your question however is a loaded one and much more than this thread could offer. I suggest you go to the "Screens" section of the forum and seach on JVC where you will find a plethora of info there...

Ok guys,

Need to make a quick decision here.

I have a refurb RS45 and a Darblet which I have not opened yet since I am waiting for my home theater to be finished.

Is there enough difference in the RS45 and RS4810 to justify the upgrade or do I wait until real 4K comes down in price?

Thanks
post #486 of 795
Well, you will miss out on the eshift2 of course and the improved lamp. Other than that, you should be satisfied.

I think the biggest question is 3D a priority to you? If so, the RS45 is plagued with ghosting and the word is that the new JVCs have improved much in this area.

As far as 4K is concerned, personally I'll worry about that later. There's no 4k content now. Even if if starts becoming available I think many of us realize that initially content will be sparse at best and you won't have a true 4K projector anyway. I jumped on board of Blu-Ray very early on and my movie selection was slim at best for some time. I'm not going to fall into that mindset right away this time. Plus, I hate it that its called 4k instead of 2k. It's 2160p not 4320p. The 4k term just makes it sound like a bigger jump in resolution than what it really is.

I am not a 3D proponent yet. I want the best 2D picture I can get with my Prismasonic lens.

I might just stand down on this for a year or two,
post #489 of 795
I was basically in the same boat as you and opted for the 4810 for 4 reasons:

improved lamp design/life - reliability
1/16 pixel adjustment
e-shift 2
brighter lamp
post #490 of 795
I am buying 3 d versions of blurays as they come out in case 3d works but, for me, 2d movie quality is the primary driver of my decision.

Does the X35 also have 1/16 pixel adjustment ?

Don't forget the extra year of warranty you get with the RS4810 of 3 years vs. the other JVC projectors 2 year warranty. wink.gif

Anyone know the ship dates for the 4810?
post #494 of 795
If you got a good deal the RS45 is a great 2D projector. If you already bought it I would save the money you'd save over the 4810 and put the money you saved towards a future upgrade or just save it. If you got a decent deal on the RS45 it should cost you at least 1/2 the price of the RS4810 pre-order.

I ordered the X55 and now waiting for it to arrive.
Would appreciate if anyone can recommend a good AT screen.
Here is the link to my theater build.

It would be better to post in the Owner's Thread. The first to receive the projector usually starts the owner's thread, but that's not the case this year.

Agreed. For the price the Seymour screens are second to none (especially if you go the DIY route like I did!). wink.gif

X35 is 1 pixel adjust.

I have posted a really small report of a x35 in the x35 section.
A x55 is arriving today at a HCFR member's home. Let's follow his first impression tonight.
Mine is coming a bit later, because first models are white.

Does anyone know what the price of replacement bulbs for this projector will be?
post #507 of 795
Msrp is $399 but I haven't heard of what the street price is gonna be. Hopefully $300 but I doubt it
post #508 of 795
I know the RS48 and X55R are essentially the same projector. But what is the difference between the RS48 and the RS4810? I was reading an article and I read "these fall into two lines, Procision (consumer) and Reference (pro), each of which have models that differ only in model number (with one exception, the Reference DLA-RS4810 at $5095, which does not have a Procision equivalent).

The 4810 has a 3 year warranty instead of 2 years for the 48 plus extra quality control. AV Science has a great price on these which is better than the 48 so no need to get the 48.

From JVC's site:

Specialized final QC
Available exclusively through AVAD custom installers
3 year parts & labor warranty
