That doesn't mean some projector could not be ranked higher by someone else. Or that a non PQ issue might trump PW such as being quieter to someone sensitive to other than forum noise.
If blacks are of ultimate importance to one and are weighted by one heavily, a JVC could trump the Sony I suppose in someone's opinion. Not in mine.
In Post #1 he said, "and even the blacks I can honestly say
are better on this Sony."
In Post #7 he wrote this, "when it fades to black it is pitch black, I can't see anything, unlike the JVC RS40 although
the blacks were great the fade to black was not black, you can still see the grey on the screen."
In Post #10 he wrote: "low APL scenes are BETTER than the JVC RS40 low APL scenes imo and for those that have witnessed the JVC will be happier with the blacks of this Sony."
It would seem to me that Chris is definitely saying that black performance--black level as well as shadow detail in low light scenes--are superior on this Sony in comparison to the JVC. Of course, this is in comparison to an older model from 2010 with a 50k-rated contrast ratio. As someone (me) who is looking to get either an RS4910 or take the leap up to the Sony this is important to clarify. If indeed the blacks are that impressive (and the auto-iris is not noticeable) the Sony would be my choice.
