I second that. An interesting cnet review comparing the Sony with the DLA-X700R and LS10000:
The reviewer is a JVC guy who loves the deep blacks but aside from that category, he gives the nod to the Sony in practically every other category when compared to the other two PJs.
"I still prefer the JVC's contrast
to the Sony's
slightly more accurate color and shadow detail
(and, with certain 4K sources, extra resolution
) but I can certainly see how some viewers might disagree." ... and if you read the review, Sony is also better at: scaling, motion processing, input lag. Though: "During "After Earth" as the ship cruises through space, for example, the black of the letterbox bars and the void itself appeared deeper and inkier on the JVC compared with the Sony.". So, for better black bars and deeper voids - look elsewhere
. Otherwise, the Sony fits the bill. Do not get me wrong - I would see and appreciate the extra deep blacks, just decided to go with the PQ balance as achieved by Sony.
To add my experience with 4k (x10). Most movie trailers are "crap", some look even worse that the upscaled by DRC bluray version. I see how some converted to 4k movies can add little to the upscaled version. The early days of 4k are like early days of bluray. Latest blurays are remarkably better than a few years back. Throw Costa Rica or some other (albeit limited number of) clips and the additional level of detail is quite remarkable.
Here you go - a little excitement before Easter.
