I should have my new projector and screen delivered and mounted in just a few days ( also ordered the Darblet).

I ordered all items based on web reviews, etc. I have seen older DILA projectors at past CES'.. but other than that it is impossible to view projectors in my area.... even large retailers do not have them on display.

I went to BHPhoto last week to view the Panny 8000, but it was on display out in the open store against a white wall.... all of the store lights were on and of course all of the window light..... this store is huge..... How in the world they expect for anyone to judge the picture is beyond me....

So, I just used my general dislike for previous LCD models I had seen in the past...... and chose the JVC. There is a little regret for not choosing the RS48, but I used too much of my budget on the screen.

I have a light controlled room, so I am hoping the picture will be plenty bright for my purposes.

2D main interest
Best Movie viewing for my budget
Sports viewing is relatively important......
3D would be merely a curiosity and maybe for my daughter and her friends... too bad the emitter and glasses will cost so much.... but that's down the road....

I will post my impressions next week.

If anyone owns a similar setup (including the screen), I would love to hear from them.

@Innhitman - Please post some impressions and expressions i.e. pics.

I don't have a similar setup right now but I'd like a similar setup in the near future. My media room is light controlled and I'd be watching movies and sports.

Just upgraded to the JVC DLA RS57 and a Lumagen 2143. I am trying to see if adding the Lumagen gives me a substantially better image than using E Shift 3.

I'm a little confused about the E Shift 3. As in, do I enable it while using the Lumagen which already upscale a to 4K or whether the E Shift 3 becomes mute when the input is 4k already.

Either way I am trying to see if the added of the expense of the Lumagen adds significantly to the picture quality.

I'll try to report my own conclusion.

I can tell you my first impression is the Lumagen is an improvement, but not sure yet if I have all setting correct or if the picture will be worth the extra expense. Since I'm a tween junkie, I really hope the Lumagen proves it's worth in this particular setup.

How it works is anytime a 4K image is being fed to the projector eshift has to be enabled. The projector automatically enables it. The only thing you're doing is bypassing the internal scaling the projector would normally do to a 1080p image to get it ready for the eshift process. The scaling in the lumagen is good so it should give you a better experience overall.

Morning Seegs108, can you clear something up for me please? If you have a JVC rs4800 which doesn't have eshift, can the Lumegan do the upprocessing in its place?
