JVC Entry-level native 4K and lumens brightness
Well, before I saw this thread it was either fix the fan in my Epson-8350 or buy a JVC DLA-x590r . However, looks like now one of the projectors in this series might be a smarter buy (if I can swing it, money wise).
You guys seem to know a lot about projectors, so I hope it's OK to ask this here.
Why is it that all HDR projectors (under $5000) seem to be just average on the lumens output? Even the (out of my price range) JVC DLS-RS600 is 1900 lumens. And while laser-based is way-out of my price range, even entry-level laser is less than 1900 lumens. I feel like I'm missing something. Is 1900 lumens "Reference" or something?
I need to project 120-inches from 16ft. in a (non-light-controlled) multi-use room. The 3LCD-based 2000-lumen Epson-8350 seems to handle it but I was hoping for a bit more light for earlier-dusk viewings.
