JVC X500 better price and wow picture also.
Then if you are a CRT man.
And I see that allot of people will not drop the CRT black level is still best, for me let them say so. That is okay and we like what we like. But here someone ask what is the best digital if I want to go digital. And I try to answer after my eyes side by side and that is more value than I have seen this but have not done a real setup side by side. And many many hours behind 2 PJ together.
They who say probably seen a jvc in one place and gone home and watched the CRT afterwords. And just remembering one scene on the CRT like I did hehe.
And that will newer change, and it does not for me still today. But when you check the same image you see something else. And when it's so close in total black or even better for me it's not a point at all to try to cover the fact. And remember that is the only visible thing when watching movie that a CRT is better than most god digitalis today.
People also say motion is better. My answer is then have you tested this side by side? Forget numbers and what it's say in the manual.
The motion is the same or better in movie BD. then if you use a lumagen+ to use 72hz for better motion on CRT. If not the digital is better tested, end of story. All high end digital uses 72hz or 96hz today.
And have motion extra on the PJ low medium or high and yes if you use extra motion you can see some artifacts and some do not like that. But the total picture feeling in a movie gets better after what I like. But without a lumagen + a CRT is not better with motion. This in my eyes. And say the opposite I do not care, I seen what I have seen.
Black total black...I have tested this side by side, and CRT is black as hell, but also weaker detail because of less light punch . And easy to see black crush. The jvc x500 does this brilliant and black is like the black bars on my screen. If it's not, then the image is not total black. On a CRT maybe but wrong.
black level on the x500 and x700 is deeper and new iris technology makes it even better near dark. But need to have the iris on. Then to get it totally black. Distance form PJ to screen is also important, because to close you can se that it's not 100% dark like a CRT in total black scenes. But put the finger in the earth and ask yourselves how many seconds in a movie will it be better on a CRT? That's up to you.
This CRT and digital have different technologies and of course different.
The jvc Gives the same feeling like a CRT when shutdown and in super dark scenes. And have the near dark CRT feeling in extreme dark scenes. And also remember that ansicontrast or intrascene contrast is so much higher on the jvc that it's not comparable. Also more light punch, Sharper images closer to the source, and better debth. Also the pixel gap is now being better on the JVC, and when using e-shift more CRT feeling because of no visible pixels even very close to screen. Because of more light punch also more clean colors, and that CRT have better colors is for be a old fact.
So short version and the reason for this answer... today 2014 best advise if you want to go digital and have CRT. Best value for the money is the and you be pleased the jvcX500. FactEdited by Dj Dee - 3/25/14 at 3:44am
