Was looking around Canadian JVC website looking for the warranty info and they have not updated thier website to include any of this years projector offerings, so I looked at other Canadian retailers info and some were listed as three years. Sent a msg off to JVC Canada asking for clarification and go this response....
"Hi Damon, Thanks for the msg! We are currently in the process of updating our site - but you will see the X55 page very shortly ~week. To confirm on your question, the warranty on the DLA-X55 is three years! Please note, you must register online through jvc.ca for the three year extension.
Not sure how they pick their warranty periods?? Perhaps a spinning wheel and darts?
Three years is what the whole line-up should be IMO....
I found Epson 6010 new only for 1600$. Is it a good projector to buy? or still better wait for a deal on Sony HW30 or HW50?
That is a steal if it's new with mount, second lamp, two 3D glasses, and three year warranty. Not much difference between the 6010 and new 6020. The 6010 will have the brightess picture and best 3D compared to JVC and Sony. It's 2D is also very good. I dumped my JVC RS40 and moved to an Epson 6010 and have no complaints. It's all a matter of tradeoffs and at that price, jump on the Epson and enjoy.
EDIT: It's always a good idea to contact AVS before buying anything though, they may have better deals (though not sure in this case. I don't think they can sell the 60x0 models over the net). They're also very good for advise. Edited by stevenjw - 2/14/13 at 3:58pm
