Personally I trust
opinion more for DLP as Aztar appreciates the whole image quality instead of being fixated primarily on only one aspect of it as Kris seems to be from his own statements.
Hello all! I don't own the LK990 but I'm posting here because my sign-in pulled up a name "mention."
Thank you, Ruined, for the kind words. Your posts of late have sure been keeping us on our toes. So, allow me to say the following, which may amount to being my longest post here.
You know, when I first entered the world of projectors, it was regarding all types of enlarged media and was geared toward work related use. So, I pined for large, sharp images. Perhaps given that history, it should be noted that I too now have a preference, and that is for bright, sharp, colorful images.
The HT9060 gives me that and more, so by inference, the LK990 should be similar in those respects.
Yes, I would like to see a comparison between the JVC RS2000 (which I haven't seen in person yet) and the BenQ LK990 (which I also haven't seen yet). I hope all RS2000s are pretty uniform, excellent samples too. All the BenQ's I've seen have been. What am I talking about? Let me give you some context, please:
As you know, I've owned a few different JVCs including the the X750 and X990 (great convergence and lens sample on the X990!!!) and viewed many others including the RS4910, X500, X550, NX5, and NX9. All those were viewed in a light controlled, dark room except the NX5 which was in a light controlled room but with lighter colored walls. Yes, they were all lamp projectors and still all of them looked great, but only two of them absolutely stunned me: the new NX9 and the RS4910. The NX9, of course... I expected it to be great, given its high end optics, native 4K panels, relatively high brightness, and contrast, but the RS4910 was the real shocker! I immediately realized it was probably a "one off" as there was something very special in its beautiful lens/sharpness and calmness for a shifter. Anyway, the point is that in my experience with JVCs in the past, there was at times some unit to unit variation. Hopefully their new series is nothing like that. If it is, I would hope the RS2000 that will compete against the LK or the HT9060 would be an excellent sample, just in case people prefer the HT9060; I don't want an asterisk next to the victory.
On a more serious note, the content chosen will be important too. Now, if we're speaking about movies, those hosting the comparison should select various content. It comes to me that there's certain content that when mastered on disc can have overexposure, leaving most any display to struggle by portraying it with a "milky cast." I can tell you that the HT9060 especially will struggle with that type of content when in the darker scenes. And if the RS2000 is like its NX9 sibling, it will have sufficient contrast to better convey it. I would say that by inferential step, the LK would be like the 9060 in that regard, but given what some of the LK owners have posted about not having any haziness, I hesitate to so say.
On bright scenes, however, I have no doubt the HT9060 will do fantastically with its native wide color, spectacular sharpness, and very quiet 1700 plus lumens.
