Like really? your main competition is the jvc 4k shift line and you dont match up their 2015 releases
FWIW, you're probably not going to want to game on a JVC with it's 125ms lag. And why does 4K vs 2K matter on the PS4, they're still rendering games at 1080p or less right?
Right so they should handle UHD Blu-ray just fine, and UHD streaming too, I think. Don't get me wrong, it's stupid they don't have 18Gbps support, but so far, I don't see a lot of cases where that's actually a problem. UHD Blu-ray worked (with the integral) on my RS4910, even with the crappy Samsung player.
good to hear it was a better experience after the color cal. The refresh rate of the glasses is going to appear nearly identical on the JVC, Epson and any of the Sony projectors (1080P and 4K). The only projector i've seen that appears as rock solid in 3D vs 2D is my Sharp 30K 3D DLP and the older BenQ W7000.
IIRC these are all 48Hz per eye right? I remember with CRTs, I needed to have them set to at least 72Hz, or better 75Hz to not be bothered by flicker. I wonder I I wouldn't be completely at ease without triple flash (144Hz/72Hz per eye). The other interesting part is the "discomfort" is gone with the 3D glasses in 2D mode, indicating it might be more the alternating than the actual refresh rate that's the problem.
There are many times I'll watch the same 3D movie on the RS600 and then a 2nd viewing on the 30K. Different experiences each with their own pros/cons. 30K's glasses are much more comfortable than the JVC /X105 and can watch 3-4 hours of 3D as if it was 2D, no eye strain.
Is the 30K a triple flash projector? And FWIW, eye strain is a bit overstating the problem, but there's definitely a different physiological feeling in 3D than 2D.

I called and asked if its B Stock complements they claim Not, saying its all refurbished by JVC Factory with original parts identical to a new unit. Seller also seem reputable and said i can call JVC with the serial number and they can confirm the 2 year warranty.
Well firstly that's exactly what a JVC B-Stock is, a projector that is no longer new, that has been back to JVC, and that JVC guarantees performs like new. I got my RS600 B-stock from AVS, however mine has the full 5 year warranty. It worries me that they say it's a 2 year warranty, that indicates to me that it's not
an official JVC B-stock/refurbished unit. I'd personally pass on it, something seems fishy there.

To be clear, the 3D is miles better on the RS600 than my prior RS4910. It's probably the best 3D I've experienced. It's just for me the 3D doesn't really add much to the movie, especially when it's not quite as comfortable to watch (I'd say due to flicker).
