Make no mistake, there are frustrations with JVC. They come out with new projectors too often instead of providing means to update existing models. There are long wait times for source switching. Good bulbs are pricey. A few other irritations here and there.
But.....damn if they don't display the prettiest picture you can buy.
Blacks are inky. Colors are vibrant. Resolution is crystal clear as long as you buy the good lens models. The depth and contrast is incredibly immersive.
However, the new native 4K models are concerning. A drop in contrast levels, are you kidding me? Contrast and inky blacks are the JVC signature. These new models sound very "Sony like" to me. I'll be passing on that generation for sure. My 620 is still wowing me.
