guys, I have been doing some research, I think you are right... the new JVCs are the best bang for the buck right now. They've always had amazing contrast but were dark-ish. Now they have even better contrast and are brighter than before, at lower prices than competition, making them essentially perfect with the sole exception that they are not true 4k. But they could be a good investment for the next 2-3 years, until 4k laser drops in price.
One thing that bugs me is the vast confusion JVC created on model names for different regions. Some start with X, others with RS, others with HD. It's rather confusing when reading online posts and forums.
