As of right this moment, with what's out there, you have to ask yourself two questions,
Will you be gaming on the unit thus require low input lag? If yes is the answer, stick with Sony.
Why do you need native 4k? It is just to watch 4k video, or are you looking to use it as a 4k HTPC desktop display?
If you are looking for the best 4k video
image currently. The Sony does not have it, as the lenses don't resolve the detail coming out of the panels...
This has been shown here in a comparison between RS400 and VW650ES
You tell me which one displays more 'native' 4k resolving detail?
Hint, not the Sony. This test may be even more embarrassing if they used an RS600 with the cream of the crop JVC lenses. You would have even less MTF Losses to the screen then. The Sony lenses in the current range just do not cut it.
If you are looking at a 4k HTPC Windows or Mac desktop environment, that is the only time you genuinely need native 4k right now... UNTIL new Native 4k JVC units come out with the current pairing of the truly excellent lenses they contain. Sony's current offerings are not better than last year.
Bandyka keeps mentioning the motion on the Sony is better... Well its not. Him and I went and looked at a whole bunch of units together, what he keeps neglecting to mention is he is a Motion Interpolation advocate and as such he prefers the way the Sony does that better. In fact, I sold him MY old 300ES when I got my JVC RS500/X7000. he just upgraded to the 320ES because he quickly discovered the shortcomings of the unit after the native 4k honeymoon wore off.
I had my 300ES and X7000 stacked for a couple of days, and I overlaid the picture split source, the motion is 10000% identical when normal motion is concerned... 24p, no interpolation. I know this because I had the overlaid image almost so perfect that the image was almost totally in focus when both units were on at the same time, so when playing content, if one had worse motion or judder than the other, then the image would have lagged behind and fell out of focus, this did not happen, meaning both display motion in the same exact way when native frame rates are concerned.
Since the JVC does not use Reality Creations aggressive processing, the JVC may appear less detailed and sharp... All that went away using MadVR and suitable supersampling on the JVC. My image I have now is the best I have ever seen hands down.
When JVC bring out a laser 4k unit or native 4k UHP based units in 2017 it will be a pretty good showdown then that's for sure. Sony at their price point with the lenses they are using is frankly unacceptable.
