I have had a JVC RS1 projector for over 5 years. The projector needs a new bulb ( I have a brand new bulb in storage), but given that technology changes so quickly, I am wondering what my projector replacement options would be today and how they might differ from what I currently own. In years past I have owned other brands and technologies (Sony LCD, Sharp DLP and now JVC DILA). So I am not opposed to a switch of brands and/or technology if the change would result in a big improvement. Other info that might help in making suggestions, I use the projector to watch TV and play DVDs. No games. Thanks for your help!

What do you use your projector for? Sounds like you were pretty happy with your JVC. The new JVC's are brighter, sharper, higher contrast and better motion. I would probably take a look at those, unless there was something about your current projector that you did not like. Hugh improvement from RS1 to a new E-shift JVC. Give us a call for pricing.

I went from JVC RS1 to JVC RS40 which is a 3d pj. I have it listed here in the classifieds for $1,300 if interested. It has been reliable and after 3 years, I am ready to upgrade. Good luck with your search.

Thanks Ian. I don't upgrade very often so my preference would be to get a new projector that has the newest technology at the time of purchase. What projectors are you considering to replace your current one with? Any particular features that you are looking for?

Thank you Mike. I use the projector for movies and tv. No video games. I have been very happy with my JVC; no issues at all.

Epson 6030 and Sony 55ES. Bulbs on JVC too much based on number of hours I watch in a year.

I think you will be amazed at what the new JVCs bring to the table vs your RS1. Eshift, the new DI, sharper, brighter, more accurate color, 3d, CMD, better motion, etc.........they really are significantly better in every way. I moved from an RS1 to RS40 (then RS45) and it was a nice upgrade in every way. Moving from an RS1 to a 4910 or 57 would be a fantastic upgrade IMO.

I am also looking to upgrade. I also have an RS1 I am finishing my new house. Have already put a 133" scope screen with masking to hdtv in the ceiling. I was thinking of using a 4k pj with zoom to scope. Then all the issues on how to eventually get a true 4k feed to PJ came up. Now they have giant flat panel 4k coming. Oh boy.
So I had thought of B stock sony 1000
Now who knows.
All thoughts will be considered.
Thanks for your inputs.
I am planning on putting a 80-90" flat panel on wall for day use.
