This a very good point. And think about how much difficulty they have getting cables to pass 18Gb/s. Imagine 48Gb/s. I think everything would have to be active fiber at that point. And you would need receiver/preamp as well as a source update. And as Markmon1 rightly points out to what gain? We're already at a point where the pixels are tiny. Sure 8K will come. So will HDMI 2.1. But I think it will be a slow transition. Probably similar to 4K. They'll start making only 8K sets at some point and quit making 4K. Over time sources that are 8K will pop up. But I think it will be met with less enthusiasm than 4K was. There's just not many scenarios where 8K resolution will be apparent to the viewer.

It would drive me absolutely crazy to suddenly have bars across the image
True is always in the numbers, odds are you are not going to have an issue if you do buy a unit. Going off the serial numbers of the RS1000 and RS2000 there are about 500 of each in the USA, that is not going into the NX5 and NX7 units which are probably about the same.

Agreed - 4K can look spectacular now. The one good thing about 8K, is it may drive down the price of 4K. I'm all for that !

When do people upgrade their projectors?

If we believe that the current JVC Chassis is good for another 3-5 years, then unless there is a fundamental shift isn the light engine / panel, would anyone upgrade?

Even if Lasers are avaiable at the price point of N7, I dont see myself upgrading. But I have read some people on this forum upgrade every 2-3 years.


Just curious why do people upgrade when there is no significant shift in the technology (eShift --> 4K, Lamp --> Laser, 1080 --> 4K, etc.)

tommarra,

In my case I up-graded because Runco was totally dropped when a Chinese Corporation purchased the brand.
And it happened really quick with no notice to the Runco customers at all.
I happened at the time to have had the Runco VX-11d that retailed for $30,000.00 US dollars.
I even purchased an extended warranty that I also lost the cost of when Runco was totally dropped.
That was in the thousands of dollars.
Just my opinion but I think if we are speaking of say what many would consider the upper working Middle-Class in the USA.
We would not be dumping $30K projectors just to go to the next Latest & Greatest that came out.
I know in my case I would have retained my Runco and been content with it even though it did not do 4K.
It would do 1080p but that's all ..........

So in my case it was done out of "Necessity" !!!

I really do wish all the posts in this thread were posted by Owners and not people making assumptions on equipment they do not own. I just hate reading through pages of posts with many irrelevant posts wasting time.

I generally try to get 4-5 years. I think people that upgrade more quickly are trying to get more resale out of their current investment and the latest bells and whistles (no matter how small the change is).

This last cycle was a bit odd for me. I upgraded my JVC RS46 after going on a theater crawl to see the latest 4K offerings. After seeing what Sony was doing in the native 4K space, and JVC and Epson in the e-shift space I decided that the JVC offered the best 4K experience for me. That cycle (RS46->RS520)was a bit quicker than usual, but after seeing UHD in action it was something I wanted. The RS520 to NX7 shift was probably the quickest upgrade I've ever done. Not because of any dissatisfaction with the RS520. It was simply a combination of the free lamp, the preorder pricing and that a friend locally wanted my current unit. The cost to upgrade was very attractive for a projector that should hit my normal 4 year plus lifespan.

Like you I see the current lineup being very similar to the RSx00 as far as longevity. I would imagine we'll see incremental tweaks for 2-3 more models and then a move to a different light source. 8K and HDMI 2.1 may get adopted before this, but it will likely be an HDMI chipset upgrade and e-shift faux 8K. I see native 8K panels being at least 5 years away for JVC. Sony may jump in sooner though as they did with 4K.

RS35 -> RS60 -> RS66 -> RS600 -> RS-2000

I'd like to say it's every two years but I find myself upgrading based on the feature set. Going from the RS66 to the RS600 was out of desperation. The 66 was plagued with operational problems.

I would expect to keep the RS2000 for a couple of years at least. I'd like to think the money would be better spent on masking for 2:35 content as the black bars on top and bottom are really the only things that bug me about the projector. In my mind I remember the RS2000 being better.

Depends on the individual. Many used to every model but since the 4x0/5x0/6x0 series, we caught on to the small updates. Unless something significant happens, I doubt most would blindly upgrade unless needed. I own the rs15-35-40-48-49-55-49-400-520 and now RS2000/N7. Unless a laser 4k projector that's affordable from JVC, I doubt I would jump this time to upgrade for any feature update

I love my rs620 so much that virtually all of my attention now is devoted to incremental audio upgrades. I have no itch to upgrade whatsoever because it's a zero-issue device for me with excellent PQ matched with a Panny ub820.

When HDMI 2.1 source material matters and when laser is affordable, that's probably my next jump.

Gonna be a while.

I couldn't agree more, after chasing the small update from JVC pixel shifter I'm not updating until JVC release laser light source that affordable, The way things looking that's going to be 3-5 years.

He was only an hour away in New Jersey. My build is May 2019 and FW is 2.06. It throws a beautiful picture on my 140" diag. scope screen. So far no issues - I only have about 10 hours on it so far. I attached some pics. PJ is not calibrated but black level is amazing. I will use the AutoCal as instructed by Manni once I get more hours on the bulb.

Off topic, but I have got to ask...You never update your server and just live with all of its vulnerabilities?

2) Sony 75Z9D, Yamaha RX-A3080, 2xOutlaw Audio 2200s, UDP-203, UBP-X800M2, Roku Ultra

If a server has no access to the Internet and is essentially an island it can be done. I've seen a Windows server stay up about that long that ran an industrial tool. Just kept plugging away.

Reality is a server is rarely ever truly isolated and you end up with at least a monthly patch cycle.

I finally got my NX5 set up this past weekend in my media room. Took me a while to get the ceiling mount and the chief interface plate to go with my rma mount.
Need to do some watching and get a proper UHD player but for now just using my Xbox one and Apple TV 4K till then.

I’m upgrading from a benq w1070 that I’ve had for about 5 years. Now just need to darken the room.

I suggest you to update to 2.07 is fast and simple, 2.06 is a production sofwtare that still have some bug (so they told me) but 2.06 plus May build means that you have a top of the line issue-free machine! The N series has an amazing pq just out of the box! Once calibrated it will be a real killer projector!

The server runs a ton of virtual machines and those are connected to the internet. The server, itself is not used as a desktop and is behind a firewall. No open ports, no web browsers running, no email etc.

I just hit the 400 hr mark on my RS2000 and am happy (lucky) to report no problems so far (minus the DI yellowing that I get around by using the filter) and no green/blue lines showing up. Sources: Panny ub820, apple 4k tv, direct tv, xbox one x, and ps4 pro. Lumagen rad pro used for tone mapping and calibrating (along with chromapure and id3). I love this projector and use it every night. Fingers crossed it stays problem free. Ive owned a JVC rs500, sony 385, and sony 885 and enjoyed them all, but the rs2000 is my favorite.

Wow that’s fast. I’m about 342hrs. I’m on firmware 2.07. Those hit the 500hrs mark without any form of untoward incident happening to your projector do report here.

How’s the brightness of the lamp? So far any degradation? Mine still quite consistent without any significant drop in lumens as far as I can tell.

I havent measured it since about the 200 hr mark on my last calibration. From memory (135" cima neve 16x9 screen) I was at 15fL at -8 iris (with filter to reduce di yellowing/low lamp) for rec709 material, and for 4k hdr I was high lamp, iris wide open with filter 28 fL, both numbers post calibration. Ill check later this week to see if any changes. No brightness changes that ive noticed anyways. Im on firmware 2.01. So far, so good!

Even if Lasers are avaiable at the price point of N7, I dont see myself upgrading. But I have read some people on this forum upgrade every 2-3 years.
I know the up-date bug has a lot to do with it

Besides getting rid of a few bugs, maybe a tad better contrast, and maybe better HDR do you think it could get much better then this?
