It had been some time (about a month) since I had the RS1, so my memory is a little fuzzy.
I was originally considering the Black Pearl, but decided to get something a little more price conscious (I'm in the Air Force and heading to Korea for a year). I decided to take something a little more "disposable" in case it didn't survive the tour. i will be getting the Pearl upon my return.
with that, this comparison is of course, Apples to Oranges. I'm still in the process of setting up and calibrating the ax200, but was very surprised and pleased with it's performance thus far. It throws a very pleasing picture and what I would consider sharp. I'm still working on adjusting the picture for the best black levels, but would not consider this washed out by any means.
It has several different modes for viewing in three categories: Home theater, Living Room and Game. Within those modes there are more sub-categories to choose from. It has pre-set viewing modes for everyones taste. From ultra-vibrant (RS1 style) to very mild like the Sony.
The detail and sharpness that far surpasses it's price point. I was watching the mountain segment of Blue Planet last night and almost got vertigo from the camera "flying" over the peaks ans valleys. Watching this pj is very "immersive".
