Thanks for pointing that out Toe. Much appreciated. This is an example of the "little things" I'm concerned about by switching from the VW95. I'm quite sure it will be a much better 2D picture, but at the same time, I'm so pleased with the VW95 picture that even improving this may not be worth it if several little things add up as annoyances. On my RS20 I never really noticed lag though so maybe this would not be an issue for me on the JVC (assuming the lag hasn't gotten worse over the years).

Only time will tell (next month), if the improvements of the new line are a big improvement or small; but I do expect improvement.
Well, that's just the thing. I hardly watch 3D. Maybe one out of every 30 times I turn it on its to watch 3D. But when I do watch 3D, it is such a visual treat and so enjoyable that I really would miss it. Would a much better 2D picture be worth giving that up? Yea, probably. But not if there were then other things that were a step back that added up like lag, fan noise, eshift noise, DI noise (unlikely from early reports), calibration ease and end results, gamma drift (major issues for me with past models - none for me on the Sony) etc etc.
BTW, I find the 3D on the VW95 to be quite exceptional. My unit exhibits very little ghosting once it is warmed up (a good 30-45 min). Others have reported results that aren't as good so maybe its a unit to unit thing or perhaps everyone perceives ghosting differently and is more prone to it. My only gripe is that the 48hz per eye through the glasses with frame packed 3D does leave some noticeable flicker, especially in bright scenes like a bright blue sky on an animated film. That said, I am very sensitive to any type of flicker and I know some people are not.

Sounds like "just two more weeks."
(Ha, I know I beat some of you other old-timers to it.
