Funny I used the same word "phenomenal" when watched Jungle book on the Sony. I observed very minimal crosstalk as well. That movie is well mastered. I think due to the contrast of the RS600 its hard to beat when it comes to 3D depth.
At this level, any of these projectors are going to look good, if set up right that is .
Laser is another level of pricing that is going to cost big time. The only affordable one that I know of is the Epson and the specs on that
one just won't suffice for me, particularly the lack of brightness. Even the RS600 I have now is on that ragged edge of "just" enough for 3D , anything less would not work . Next level above this is the JVC4500
which would be a perfect fit for me in every way but the price is not . My budget maximum right now would be the VW675ES, if it had 2500 lumens and the 18gbps boards I would be happy enough with a lamp
and happy enough to pay extra for those features. OK, full P3, can't forget that one . There's a BIG gap between the JVC RS600, Sony VW675ES and the new JVC Z1 4500, the VW1100 is gone. My guess is
we will be seeing something to fill that gap in the next year and I want to know what that will be now
The 675ES is more of a lateral move at this point but one that I will likely embrace . The number one feature of the Sony is the calmer, more natural picture that does not appear to be digitally excited all the time.
I watched 4K version of Independence day last night, spent most of my time trying to eliminate the background noise. In the end I had a very, very good handle on this, much better than before. If I can tweak this a
little more it might be good enough for me to leave well enough alone .
Thanks for the feedback with 3D on your 320 , I expect the 675 will be as good especially with the increased contrast . 3D on the JVC is good and the contrast increase over my previous is what makes this so much better. Ghosting is still there
but very subtle and minimal. Didn't notice the ghosting first because I was so focused on the other aspects, but once I settled down I notice the levels are about the same as my previous, which was pretty darn good.
The JVC RS600 is an awesome projector, even if I hold on I will be more than happy until I see what will fill the BIG price gap.
Oh, btw almost forgot, the 675/550 also has DI in HDR , also a nice little feature bonus.
