How would it compare to the JVCs?
HT9060 not out yet (not even announced officially, actually, but that is the official name), so no reviews. The international version X12000H was recently announced and is coming out in a couple weeks; the specs are available online here:
Note this is not to be confused with the 1st generation HT9050/X12000 which was released as one of the first 4K DLP projectors and thus due to being one of the very first was lacking important firmware/hardware features needed for 4K and optimal PQ making it a poor deal. However, the new model has most features one would want from a 4K machine and looks very promising:
* 4K UHD (XPR shift / 8.3m pixels per frame)
* HDR10 and HLG
* 98% DCI-P3
* HLD LED / 2200 LUMENS light source; 20,000hr until half brightness
* Fast cycling LEDs instead of color wheel (less RBE than slower color wheels)
* Ultra sharp high quality lens with ample lens shift
* Blu-ray 3D via DLP link
* Dynamic black 4x LED dimming
* Premium chassis
You had a DLP projector with the 2050, and this DLP projector will have tradeoffs very similar to what you are used to.
Lower on/off contrast means you won't get the blackest blacks in very dark scenes that don't have HDR highlights (mainly dark SDR content) just like as is the case with your 2050, but again like the 2050 the HT9060 will have super high ANSI contrast which comes in great use to give some extra pop during intense 4K HDR scenes.
If you are interested in 4K UHD / 8M pixel solid state under $10k there are currently no options from the LCOS camp available, you need to spend $20k+. Epson has a 1080p projector which can do 4M pixels (about 3K) via shift, but their shift algo is not very good and honestly doesn't look much different than 1080p.
Definitely worth checking out when it arrives; even if you liked the way the JVC looked better it still might be worth getting the BenQ for the no hassle, no flicker, super stable 20,000 high output LED lightsource. Once you go solid state lightsource hard to go back, like going back to a lamp RPTV after you've owned a LED flat panel.
