There's one big difference, with JVC every machine from a given generation is fundamentally the same design. Same lens spec, electronic features, etc. I don't know if they just use the better panels in the higher end ones to get the higher contrast or what, but everything from an RS46 to an RS66 is all the same chassis, lens, and even lamp as far as I know. Things like CA, that aren't dependent on the difference in panels will be similar across all models in the series.
This is the same as how the Runco LS3 and LS5 are basically the same machine. Just like if you see an LS3 or LS5 you can get a good idea of the fundamental look/performance of the other the same is true of an RS46 vs an RS66 (except for e-shift).
I think what Seegs is trying to say is you can't generalize how all DLPs look by looking at just one from one manufacturer. You can't look at a BenQ W5000 and extrapolate that to what a Planar 8150 will look like, they use different lenses, chassis, lamps, and different DMDs. It would be like looking at an HW30 and saying you know what a JVC RS66 looks like because they are both LCoS.
